GlobaFone to continue to provide award-winning satellite phone services to Texas Department of Information Resources and dozens of other states.

Our Texas clients have a variety of requirements

The Texas Department of Information resources (DIR) has renewed its satellite service contract with GlobaFone, a leading satellite phone Service Provider. The contract extension is valid for one year and represents the third renewal. The Portsmouth, NH-based company provided Texas with competitive pricing and their best value solutions. Under the contract GlobaFone will provide clients in the State with Iridium satellite products and airtime service. In addition, any other State that chooses to do so may buy off of the Texas contract at the specially negotiated prices.

“We are very pleased that DIR has chosen to renew this contract,” said GlobaFone President Lou Altman. “Lowest bidders no longer automatically win business because savvy buyers recognize the risk the low price bidders present. Low price means low value; end of story.”

Under the DIR contract GlobaFone currently provides satellite service to dozens of Texas government agencies including law enforcement, universities, public services, transportation and recreational sectors. “Our Texas clients have a variety of requirements," said Altman. “Some use satellite phones in emergencies; others use their phones daily. We offer flexibility," he said.

Nationally, GlobaFone clients include dozens of Government, State and Local agencies, corporations, non-profits and individuals, all with diverse satellite communications requirements.

GlobaFone of Portsmouth, NH is an award-winning, leading service provider of satellite phone solutions to Federal, State and Local Governments, as well as corporate clients.
