AsiaSat and Thaicom announced the signing of a cooperation agreement to provide satellite services from the orbital location of 120 degrees East.

In a release, the two firms said under the agreement, the two companies will place an interim satellite at the 120 degrees East orbital slot, while a new satellite contracted with Space Systems/Loral will be launched in early 2014.

AsiaSat and Thaicom will provide services on their portions of the new satellite under the name AsiaSat 6 and Thaicom 7 respectively. This cooperation will preserve the 120 degrees East orbital slot for Thailand and will provide additional broadcast, telecommunications and broadband services across the Asia-Pacific region.

AsiaSat 6/Thaicom 7 will have 28 high-power C-band transponders serving Asia and Australia.
