KVH Expands Coverage to Africa
KVH Industries (NASDAQ:KVHI) announced the successful activation of its mini-VSAT Broadband(SM) service in Africa. The latest step in the joint effort by KVH and ViaSat to offer a seamless global broadband network for vessels and aircraft, the new African coverage area is using the Telesat 11N satellite, which has already been supporting Atlantic service. The network is now bringing broadband Internet and voice service for commercial and leisure boaters in and around Africa.
"We are thrilled to kick off the new year by bringing our African coverage online," said Brent C. Bruun, KVH's vice president of sales and business development.
