SPACE & SATELLITE AU: “Kacific reveals ground infrastructure locations, new service provider strategy”

 

 

The weekly newsletter for Australia’s satellite and space sector, SPACE & SATELLITE AU, interviewed Kacific CEO Christian Patouraux about preparations for the launch of Kacific-1.

Journalist Geoff Long reported on the company’s ground infrastructure plans and potential locations, as well as a new service provider strategy that Kacific is rolling out to empower smaller broadband operators.

“Larger and larger operators are knocking at our door because the bandwidth we deliver is something unique in the region in terms of price, in terms of access – accessible on very small terminals – it’s excellent to connect rural communities, to connect universal service obligations and many of the governments have a drive to go into universal service. And Kacific is the only option for many of these countries,” said Patouraux.
