“Beyond the Blue Continent” in SatMagazine

The SatMagazine June 2016 issue carries a joint article from Cyril Annarella, Executive Director, Kacific, and Kerstin Roost, Public Relations Director, Newtec.

Beyond The Blue Continent

The challenge of creating ubiquitous broadband connectivity is key to the continued growth and development of the satellite sector.
