Australian satellite services provider NewSat has launched its latest dish for its Indian Ocean satellite, the main station for subscribers in the Middle East.

The new dish will increase coverage in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

“This latest NewSat antenna facilitates communication with the Apstar IIR satellite, which is strategically located in the Indian Ocean region 34,000 kilometres above the equator,” said John Walker, chairman of NewSat.

“It means that NewSat can now provide big business, NGOs and governments with new opportunities to deliver two-way broadband internet connection to a wide area of the earth’s surface including the Middle East, Australia and Africa.”

Based at the firm’s Perth teleport, the new antenna will allow NewSat to improve service levels to the Indian Ocean region, which covers the Middle East and Africa as well as parts of South Asia.

“NewSat already has a nest of antennas communicating with 11 satellites in its Perth and Adelaide teleports, but this new connection offers communication to particularly sought-after and in-demand sectors of the globe,” said Paul Seaton, general manager, NewSat MEA.
