Speedcast Expands Capacity on AsiaSat 9 to Serve AsiaPac


Asia Satellite Telecommunications Company (AsiaSat) has inked an expansion and renewal agreement with Speedcast International.

The agreement will see Speedcast International utilize multiple C- and Ku-band transponders on the brand-new AsiaSat 9, which serve East Asia, Indonesia and Myanmar. The agreement enhances the high-quality managed network services for Speedcast’s global customers in the mobility, maritime, energy, enterprise and government sectors, and for cellular backhaul solutions to emerging markets. AsiaSat has been a partner of Speedcast in the Asia-Pacific region since 1999.

Amid this dynamic market and evolving customer requirement, we are grateful to continue to support Speedcast’s expansion and success in the Asia Pacific.”
