MEASAT Makes Music

MEASAT operates three satellites and the fleet is able to provide satellite capacity to more than 145 countries which represent 80 percent of the world’s population across Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Australia. The fleet will be further enhanced with the launch of MEASAT-3a, providing additional capacity and in-orbit redundancy at the Company’s key 91.5E orbital video slot.
