Maritime Telecommunications Network Signs Exclusive Contract With AT&T

Tuesday, July 27, 1999
Maritime Telecommunications Network (MTN), a subsidiary of ICG Satellite Services, has signed an exclusive seven-year lease agreement with AT&T to provide C-Band equipment including antennas, stabilized platforms and terminal services to be used on US Navy ships around the world. MTN already supports numerous government contracts including Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWAR), Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Afloat Personal Telecommunications System (APTS) and Armed Forces Radio and Television Services (AFRTS). The new agreement extends MTN's previous contract with AT&T and will include the installation of at least 15 APTS systems on board military ships. The MTN system enables sailors to utilize their AT&T Calling Cards to make calls from anywhere in the world. The lease agreement allows renewal options, which will grant AT&T the ability to continue service throughout the term of the APTS Program's life.
