Kacific selects AV-Comm teleport for first satellite broadband service in the Pacific

May 17 2016

Kacific to utilise Av-Comm’s teleport to commence affordable internet services to consumers, public institutions and enterprise clients throughout the Pacific

SYDNEY, May 17, 2016. Leading satellite operator Kacific Broadband Satellites will commence Ku Band operations from one of Av-Comms strategically located APAC teleports to provide connectivity, hosting and uplink services for Kacific’s first high speed broadband satellite service in the Pacific.

Av-Comm will host Kacific’s newly acquired Newtec Dialog VSAT hub and supply IP transit at its facilities to provide Kacific with the ability to offer affordable satellite broadband connectivity into the Pacific.

Kacific provides Ku-band capacity to customers in the Pacific, ahead of the launch of its new Ka-band satellite. The Av-Comm teleport will initially be used to uplink Internet connectivity to a number of schools in the Republic of Vanuatu. Kacific will expand its broadband services later in the year to consumers, enterprises and other public institutions in locations around Asia and the Pacific where Internet connectivity is currently unavailable, extremely slow or very expensive.

Kacific CEO Christian Patouraux said “Our aim is to deliver fast, accessible and affordable direct-to-premises broadband connectivity to areas where other types of connectivity are absent, substandard and unaffordable. Connecting remote schools with good quality Internet in Vanuatu is a perfect example of the value we bring to Pacific communities. We’ve been working with Av-Comm for the past 12 months on a range of connectivity and uplink options and have found them to be an agile and a cost effective partner for the ground segment of our first broadband service.”

Av-Comm MD Michael Cratt said: “Kacific is committed to providing high speed and cost-effective internet connectivity to the people of the Pacific, something Av-Comm is passionate about. We’re extremely pleased to be part of Kacific’s new Ku Band broadband project which reflects our many years of satellite communications experience within the APAC region.”
