Ken Grunski, Telestial
A few months ago, I rented a satellite phone from Telestial, the leading provider of SIM cards, satellite phones and GSM phones, to bring on a trip to the Himalayas. In rural Nepal, with 20,000 foot peaks around me, it was touch and go at times. But sure enough, I was able to use the phone to call home. True, the phone is about the size of a small brick, something that MacGyver would have used on an early episode. But hey, I was calling home via a satellite and that appealed to the George Jetson in me. When I returned home, I got in touch with Telestial’s president, Ken Grunski, to learn more.
