Thuraya - Crystal Clear Through Space


Louisa called me this morning from Ikotos in Southern Sudan using her Thuraya satellite phone. The call quality of the connection to a VZW cell tower in Seattle via space was incredible with no delay at all. This was miles better (and more expensive!) than any VOIP product I have ever used. Fun fact: Thuraya is the Arabic word for the constellation we call Cassiopeia (at least that's what my Hans Wehr says)
