The company says the name change reflects its increasingly broad satellite-communications portfolio. It’s been expanding its role in in the maritime and energy sectors and is providing more data-communications services than was previously the case.
“Telenor Satellite has undoubtedly established itself as a key provider of satellite services throughout Europe and the Middle East, with an increasing international focus and a broader customer base” said Morten Tengs, CEO of Telenor Satellite. “Following the launch of Thor 7, the new name is well-timed as it allows us to develop our wide-ranging satellite-communication services and look forward to further extending our position in the market and expanding our regional coverage.”
The new name comes into effect immediately and will be implemented across the company’s products and services and communications throughout 2016.
