Speedcast to Provide O3b MEO Ka-band Services for Land-Based Production Platform in West Africa 

Speedcast International Limited (ASX: SDA), the world's most trusted provider of highly reliable, fully managed, remote communication and IT solutions, today announced that the company has been selected to provide Middle Earth Orbit (MEO) Ka-band managed communications services to a production asset owned and operated by a major U.S.-based operator in Equatorial Guinea on Bioko Island, off the coast of West Africa.

Speedcast will leverage satellite Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) connectivity to deliver communications between the production asset and the customer's corporate network. The new MEO Ka-band service will be delivered in partnership with O3b, and will replace the company's existing backup VSAT service, delivering low latency communications and improving operational efficiency.
