RuSat Selects Newtec To Offer B2C And B2B VSAT Broadband Service

Service will enable high speed and competitive broadband connectivity all over Russia using the Yamal-402 satellite

MOSCOW, Russia, and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 28 January 2013 RuSat, a satellite service provider for enterprise customers, Internet service providers, and government agencies in Russia, is launching a new satellite broadband service using Newtec's latest VSAT hub and end-user terminal technology.

The service will be offered over the Yamal-402 satellite that was launched on December 8 2012. Until now the only VSAT services available in Russia were expensive and only available in limited parts of the country. Using the new Yamal-402 satellite, RuSat is now providing satellite broadband services all over the Russian territory. Raduga Internet is the first ISP that is using RuSat's service to provide Internet services to the consumer market.

Sergey Alymov, General Director of RuSat, said. "We have made an extensive market analysis and selected Newtec's VSAT technology for our new satellite broadband service. We are impressed by the ease of use, the bandwidth efficiency and the price attractiveness of the end-user terminal. This means we can keep our service pricing as low as possible for our customers without jeopardising quality. That is key! Additionally, Newtec has an excellent reputation for equipment reliability and customer service so we are pleased to partner with them."

In 2012 Newtec started shipping its new high-speed VSAT broadband technology. This new technology has already been selected by several customers, including Europe's most successful satellite broadband service. Whilst the RuSat service will utilise Ku band, the terminals can be easily upgraded later to operate in Ka band by a simple change of Newtec's interactive LNB and with no hardware adaptation to the satellite modem or the antenna.

Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec, said: "The Russian VSAT broadband market is experiencing a real boost as more capacity becomes available over a wider geographic area. We are proud that we can help RuSat offer market leading satellite broadband services and this at a very competitive price point both for the professional and the consumer market."

The Yamal-402 satellite, located at 55° east, was launched by Gazprom Space Systems and is equipped with 46 Ku Band transponders with four fixed and one steerable beam.
