Harris CapRock expands offshore cellphone service

Offshore staff

HOUSTON Harris CapRock Communication has expanded its offshore GSM service to maritime and rig crew members. The company says the global system for mobile communication (GSM) enables roaming, pay-as-you-go voice, text, email, and some data services.

The GMS lets crew use prepaid SIM cards or home network roaming options, Harris CapRock said. This allows use of many existing handsets and the billing goes to the individual’s home account.
