Publishes video proof of technology for voice calls through Lynk’s sat2phone service
Lynk Global, Inc., the world’s leading sat2phone telecoms provider, today claims released the first-ever video of a series of two-way voice calls between standard-mobile-phones connected via satellite. The video shows multiple voice calls using standard mobile phones connected via Lynk’s existing satellite-cell-towers in orbit.
Charles Miller, CEO and co-founder of Lynk, stated, “Carl Sagan once remarked ‘Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.’ The video we release today underscores Lynk’s commitment to a higher standard.” Miller continued, “When Lynk completed the first-ever connection from a satellite to a standard phone on Earth in March 2020, we shared video to demonstrate our results to the world. Today we are doing the same for two-way voice calls.”
“Today’s news goes to the heart of our mission to connect everyone, everywhere,” noted Tyghe Speidel, CTO and co-founder at Lynk. “With initial service now underway in Palau for SMS messaging, and with other countries to follow this year, the Lynk team is thrilled to demonstrate voice call capabilities. While we continue to prioritize SMS texting service for our MNO partners in the near term, these initial voice call results highlight advancements in our technology and move us a step closer to delivering on our mission,” he continued.
“As Lynk rolls out it’s network and mobile network operators (MNOs) launch the Lynk service to their subscribers mobile coverage will be extended to all of the world that doesn’t have it already. Starting with SMS service and latterly adding voice and data you’ll be able to use your phone in any location, no matter where. With the first MNO already having launched Lynk’s initial service other mobile operators following soon the 90% of the world’s geography without mobile coverage will begin to have coverage”.

Lynk is just straight up trying to pull the wool over peoples eyes with this title. It may well be the “First-Ever Video” of a phone call to a satellite, but AST Spacemobile already achieved this a while back – just not captured on video to show people. This is so desperate and embarrassing for a company – The only thing missing is a thumbnail of some goofy reaction shot of someones shocked face.

How do you prove you connect to the satellite when you’re in the city that’s covered by the towers?
