Press Release
Thursday, July 26, 2012

Intelsat S.A., & MTN Satellite Communications (MTN) agree to provide satellite services to Caribbean cruise & yacht customers

Under a long-term agreement, MTN will leverage the first Intelsat EpicNG satellite, Intelsat 29e, to provide more than 2 gigabits of capacity for MTN's cruise and yacht customers in the Caribbean.

The Intelsat EpicNG platform is a complementary overlay to Intelsat's leading global satellite network.  Initially, MTN will utilize capacity on Intelsat's Ku-band mobile global broadband infrastructure. Once Intelsat 29e is launched in 2015, MTN will then partially transition to its custom-designed service on the Intelsat EpicNG platform, enabling MTN to deliver an unprecedented level of throughput in key Caribbean regions, especially for the cruise and yacht sectors.

MTN Satellite Communications (MTN), the first company to offer a stabilized Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) satellite solution for ships at sea, has contributed to the evolution of the satellite industry over the past three decades.

Intelsat is a leading provider of satellite services worldwide. For over 45 years, Intelsat has been delivering information and entertainment for many of the world's leading media and network companies, multinational corporations, Internet Service Providers and governmental agencies.
