GEE buys Ku-band payload from SES

SES has announced that satcom and entertainment services provider GEE has purchased its own Ku-band payload on SES’s AMC-3 satellite, to boost capacity for customers in North America, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}GEE will rebrand the acquired satellite communications payload as Eagle 1, with SES operating the non-station-kept satellite.

“This satellite is a key element in the strategic expansion of our global satellite network,” said Abel Avellan, president of GEE.

“Our vision is to reach hundreds of millions of people on the move around the world with a reasonably priced, high-speed Wi-Fi experience that’s equivalent to what they get at their homes or offices. To that end, GEE is increasing satellite capacity and upgrading our robust ground infrastructure of owned teleports.”

“We are also bringing to market a portfolio of exclusive solutions, such as our patented SpeedNet high-speed browsing technology. For users, that means the best value and experience for entertainment and internet mobility services wherever they travel.”{/mprestriction}
