“This is the third major services agreement awarded to SpeedCast by the Customer in the past 12 months. Working side-by-side with the Customer, we proposed a solution which has taken their operational and business requirements into consideration. The Customer will be able to drive global network consistency and gain efficiencies as additional countries come under a common global managed service. The Customer is now able to better manage resources and streamline operational processes by working with us across various countries and three continents.” said Keith Johnson, Senior Vice President, Energy of SpeedCast.
