Telikom PNG updates capacity deal with satellite operator SES

26 Jun 2012

Satellite operator SES, which is headquartered in Luxembourg, has revealed that it has struck a new multi-year capacity deal with the fixed line incumbent in Papua New Guinea, Telikom PNG. At present Telikom contracts more than 100MHz capacity with SES, and the renewal, it is claimed, will allow the telco to continue expanding its mobile voice services into new regions, while also enabling it to provide telephone services over mountainous terrain ‘by providing cellular backhaul between a large number of sites around the country and the capital, Port Moresby’. Charles Litau, Telikom PNG’s chief executive officer, said of the updated agreement: ‘The new deal will allow us to provide our customers with connectivity to the remotest locations – the highlands, mining camps and islands of Papua New Guinea.’
