EC picks Inmarsat, Solaris for mobile satellite services

Friday 15 May 2009 | 08:33 CET | News
The European Commission has selected Inmarsat and Solaris Mobile to provide mobile satellite services across Europe. The services, such as high-speed internet access, mobile television and radio or emergency communications, will be provided over a specifically reserved spectrum. Mobile satellite services (MSS) are expected to offer wireless communications to millions of EU consumers and businesses with portable terminals carried by a person or mounted on a car or a ship. They can also help bridge the digital divide in the availability of high-speed internet coverage by reaching rural and less populated regions. Member states now have to ensure that Inmarsat Ventures and Solaris Mobile have the right to use the specific radio frequencies identified in the Commission's decision and the right to operate their respective mobile satellite systems. These providers have to be authorised to use their satellite systems all over Europe for 18 years from the selection decision.
