Telenor Satellite Services
is delivering Ku-band satellite service into new regions of the
world including the Caribbean and the coastal regions of the United
States and South America.
Telenor's expanded Ku-band service opens the possibility of high-speed
data communications, LAN and WAN connectivity, and Internet access via
satellite for a variety of smaller vessels and offshore facilities. The
service, which is part of the company's extension of its Sealink Ku-band
services, became commercially available in the region in mid-May through
Telenor's Santa Paula, California land earth station.
The service is already providing regional communications to users in the
cruise industry operating in the Caribbean.
