September 11, 2001 Testimonial

  • “Shortly after the World Trade Towers were struck, Verizon lost all service from their West Street Central switching office. My cell phone was essentially useless, as was our landline home line. I walked out to a clear area on our street and turned on my Iridium handset.

  • It quickly responded with "Registered" and the signal came up. It meant more than I can say to have that call go through at that moment. I carry my Iridium handset regardless of how short a trip may be. Your service is an indispensable communications tool.”
