SpeedCast—Major Maritime Routes Covered (SATCOM)

[SatNews] SpeedCast has launched new, expanded coverage for its global VSAT maritime network in the Indian and South Atlantic Ocean regions.

The enhanced service strengthens the reach of SpeedCast’s network in these two key shipping regions, using multiple satellite footprints, and now completes the VSAT coverage for all major maritime routes. SpeedCast has seen a sharp increase in the demand for its maritime services across the transatlantic route from Africa to South America and across the Indian Ocean.

The new coverage of the two heavily traversed routes is provided via three satellites which enable increased availability, uptime, and resiliency; and further improve the user experience for all of SpeedCast’s maritime customers operating in the regions.

The launch of the Indian and South Atlantic VSAT services strengthens and expands the reach of SpeedCast’s existing maritime VSAT network. SpeedCast pioneered the delivery of a seamless auto-beam-switching broadband network using multiple satellites operating in the Ku-band. This latest expansion highlights SpeedCast’s unwavering commitment to its customers to provide expanded coverage in critical regions.
