The move is the culmination of a global expansion project started by SpeedCast two years ago, involving a number of acquisitions and a restructuring of the company.
As part of this process SpeedCast acquired satellite industry players Australian Satellite Communications, Pactel International and Elektrikom Satellite Services – companies which will now be unified under the SpeedCast brand.
SpeedCast says that it now supports customers across more than 60 countries through 16 sales and support offices, 30 teleport operations and a network of 150 partners, offering a range of C-band and Ku-band VSAT services.
“We already have leadership market positions in Asia Pacific for land VSAT services – as well as globally for maritime – and the time has come to deliver on our vision of becoming a true global leader by taking this next step forward,” said Pierre-Jean Beylier, CEO of SpeedCast.
“We are proud of our heritage in Asia and our commitment to Asia remains total and passionate. But in our dynamic growth process we have developed global experience and capability and today’s announcement is all about positioning the company as a true world player – to the benefit of all of our customers in particular and to the market worldwide.”
“Maritime is typical of the SpeedCast commitment to world class customer service and delivery. We take a consultative approach, working with our customers to help them select the best solutions available based on their requirements. We are technology and frequency agnostic and operate the largest suite of solutions to give us all the options possible.”
