SINGAPORE and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 26 April 2016. Leading satellite operator Kacific Broadband Satellites andNewtec, a specialist in designing, developing and manufacturing equipment and technologies for satellite communications, today announced they have agreed on a cooperation for powering Kacific’s interim services using Newtec Dialog® to be deployed and to provide affordable satellite broadband connectivity in the Pacific.
The multiservice platform will initially be used to deliver Internet connectivity to a number of schools in the Republic of Vanuatu. Kacific will be expanding its broadband service delivery to consumers, enterprises and other public institutions in places where Internet connectivity is lacking due to poor or non-available terrestrial infrastructure. The whole of South-East Asia and the Pacific, from Sumatra, Indonesia, to the French Polynesian archipelagos will ultimately benefit from the Kacific broadband service.
