    "Iridium Satellite has launched its commercial mobile data service,
    including dial-up connectivity and direct-Internet connections.
    For the first time, users will be able to access the Internet and World Wide
    Web from any part of the globe, thanks to Iridium's only truly global
    network. Costs for Iridium's data services are included with voice telephony
    at charges that will retail for no more than $1.50 per minute."
    
    Looks like iridium is in this for the long haul after all.
