UAE-based satellite operator, Yahsat, a wholly owned company of the Mubadala Development Co, has said it plans to launch its third satellite in 2016, extending their commercial Ka-band coverage to an additional 17 countries and 600 million users, Khaleej Times has reported. The third satellite places Yahsat as the world’s eighth largest operator in terms of revenue. Al Yah 3 will utilise the most advanced technology available in the market, will extend the company’s commercial Ka-band coverage across the African continent and will, for the first time, cover South America. The service will provide wide reaching, reliable and cost effective satellite broadband and internet connectivity to unserved and underserved communities, consumers, enterprises and telecoms operators.
