Kacific Taps Av-Comm Teleport for Ku-band Service in Pacific
[Via Satellite 05-16-2016] Kacific Broadband Satellites has entered a partnership with Av-Comm to commence Ku-band operations from one of its teleports in the Asia-Pacific. The company will provide connectivity, hosting and uplink services for Kacific’s first high speed broadband satellite service in the Pacific. Av-Comm will host Kacific’s newly acquired Newtec Dialog VSAT hub and supply IP transit at its facilities.
Kacific currently provides Ku-band capacity to customers in the Pacific through Av-Comm’s teleport ahead of the launch of its new Ka-band satellite. The Av-Comm teleport will initially uplink Internet connectivity to a number of schools in the Republic of Vanuatu. Kacific plans to expand its broadband services later in the year to consumers, enterprises and other public institutions in locations around Asia and the Pacific where Internet connectivity is currently unavailable, extremely slow or very expensive.
