No. Global-One does not announce peers to SprintLink.

I no longer work for GSL (now know as Global-One) and do not want to speak
for them but..

Global-One does not announce SprintLink routes to any of their peers, except
for certain transit agreements. Remember that Global-One and SprintLink are
currently 2 separate networks from a routing point of view. This fact has
been stated on this list more than once. SprintLink provides transit to
Global-One for most non-European destinations but Global-One does not
provide transit to SprintLink.
