Iran plans three communication satellites

12 Jun 2019

The government of Iran is looking to improve satellite communications services following the devastating floods which hit parts of the country earlier this year. A report from the Financial Tribune says the Iranian Space Agency is working with government-owned wholesale network operator Telecommunications Infrastructure Company (TIC) to develop three new satellite platforms which will provide coverage of the provinces of Tehran, Isfahan and Hamedan. Satellite communications enabled authorities to maintain contact with affected areas during the recent floods when fixed and mobile networks were out of action.
