A leading satellite company, ABS, and Bluesky Pacific Group (Bluesky) have signed a multi-transponder contract which will enable Bluesky to provide high quality telecommunication services to hard-to-reach areas.
According to a joint press release from ABS and Bluesky, the multi-year capacity deal will offer expanded satellite connectivity services across the Samoan islands and the Pacific.
Under the agreement, Bluesky will use the On C-band (OCB) platform for internet, telephone and video content delivery services to Samoa and American Samoa.
This will enable Bluesky to readily extend current high speed internet connectivity to meet increasing customer demands as required.
The OCB platform will enhance satellite connectivity to the Pacific where frequent typhoons and cyclones are common and C-Band communications are crucial for survival and for the well being of the people.
With this extension of internet platform, Bluesky says its customers can be assured of greater availability of internet services and coverage in more locations.
ABS, based in Bermuda, owns satellites covering 80% of the world’s population across the Americas, Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, and Russia.
