SpeedCast Re-Branding Creates New Global Force In Satellite Communications

SpeedCast to streamline acquisitions into single identity to position the company as top 5 industry player globally.

Honolulu, Hawaii, January 18, 2014 - SpeedCast, one of the world's major international satellite telecommunications service providers, today announced the latest step along its global expansion journey - a unifying of its brand to create a single new force with a top five position in the industry.

With more than 15 years experience, SpeedCast has enjoyed sustained success and growth from its base in Hong Kong and now supports customers across more than 60 countries through 16 sales and support offices, 30 teleport operations and a network of 150 partners. Since embarking on its global expansion two years ago, SpeedCast has acquired other established satellite industry players, Australian Satellite Communications, Pactel International and Elektrikom Satellite Services.

"We already have leadership market positions in Asia Pacific for land VSAT services - as well as globally for maritime - and the time has come to deliver on our vision of becoming a true global leader by taking this next step forward," said Pierre-Jean Beylier, CEO of SpeedCast.

"We are proud of our heritage in Asia and our commitment to Asia remains total and passionate. But in our dynamic growth process we have developed global experience and capability and today's announcement is all about positioning the company as a true world player - to the benefit of all of our customers in particular and to the market worldwide."

SpeedCast is making its announcement on the opening day of the Pacific Islands Telecommunications Association (PITA) meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii, where many of its customers will be attending. The company will also be appearing and speaking at the Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC) at the same venue on the following day.

SpeedCast offers a vast range of services across satellite technology, including broadband services, managed network services and value added services such as VOIP and WAN optimization. Industries served include Oil & Gas, Mining, Telcos, Government and maritime, where the company has established a true one-stop shop with a world class infrastructure for secure communications.

SpeedCast's maritime business is a new emerging force in with a leadership position in Asia and growing momentum in Europe. Within the maritime sector, SpeedCast has a reputation for total service and innovation; such as when it pioneered the first global Ku-band satellite communications network with auto-beam switching. It now offers a full range of C-band and Ku-band services.

"Maritime is typical of the SpeedCast commitment to world class customer service and delivery," added Mr Beylier.

"We take a consultative approach, working with our customers to help them select the best solutions available based on their requirements. We are technology and frequency agnostic and operate the largest suite of solutions to give us all the options possible. This approach is being developed for our customers across all our markets and segments as we move towards making SpeedCast the "go to" organisation for all aspects of satellite communications, wherever they are."
