Telenor Satellite Broadcasting Becomes Telenor Satellite

[Satnews] Telenor Satellite Broadcasting (TSBc) announced today that it is changing its name to Telenor Satellite.

The name change reflects the company’s increasingly broad satellite-communications portfolio, as they have significantly expanded their position in the maritime and energy sectors and now provide more data-communications services than before.

Telenor Satellite has grown as a key European satellite operator, providing communication services for customers in the broadcast, maritime, and oil and gas markets. 

The investment in new satellites—most notably THOR 7, which launched in 2015—has provided the additional growth capacity needed to expand overall business and to extend services capability within the mobility VSAT market.  The new name reflects the changing balance of their business, allowing more relevance to customers within all the markets.

The new name comes into effect immediately and will be implemented across the company’s products and services and communications throughout 2016. 

Telenor Satellite is a major European satellite provider of broadcast and broadband services for customers in the media, maritime, and oil and gas sectors. Utilizing a hybrid network that comprises our satellite fleet, teleports and a terrestrial fiber network, Telenor Satellite delivers turnkey broadcasting solutions, end-user connectivity and application services via satellite throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

From the distribution of digital TV and radio content to millions of European homes to the provision of reliable communications in remote locations on land and at sea, we are committed to keeping our customers connected via satellite.

Telenor Satellite has undoubtedly established itself as a key provider of satellite services throughout Europe and the Middle East, with an increasing international focus and a broader customer base” said Morten Tengs, CEO of Telenor Satellite. “Following the launch of THOR 7, the new name is well-timed as it allows us to develop our wide-ranging satellite-communication services and look forward to further extending our position in the market and expanding our regional coverage.
