Million minutes per month on Globe GSM

Globe Wireless has announced it has reached the milestone of surpassing one million GSM minutes per month on its Globe Mobile system.

Since its launch in April 2009, Globe Wireless says that GlobeMobile has grown to become the world’s largest maritime GSM network with approximately 20,000 active subscribers on just over 1,300 vessels.

GlobeMobile provides crew members with voice calling and SMS capabilities, allowing for standard voice calls to and from the vessel, SMS messaging and free onboard mobile-to-mobile calling.

The system can be used with Inmarsat FleetBroadband and VSAT terminals through the company’s own Globe Wireless-built GSM network.

Crew members insert the GlobeMobile SIM card into their own GSM phone, and can then send and receive voice calls and SMS messages while at sea.

“We have over one million reasons why GlobeMobile is the maritime industry’s GSM service of choice,” said David Kagan, president and CEO of Globe Wireless.

“I think it speaks volumes about how our customers recognise the value of GlobeMobile in being the anytime, anywhere at sea, personal communications solution.”
