“As satellite services are getting more advanced while becoming more affordable, organisations are starting to recognise the importance of having network coverage that goes beyond cellular and Wi-Fi. Satellite is no longer regarded as just a niche market opportunity.”

This announcement has been approved by the Board of Directors.
