iPSTAR sees strong uptake in Australia

27 Sep 2006

Shin Satellite subsidiary iPSTAR Australia (IPA) expects to have 2,000 new subscribers a month by the end of the year, following a deployment rate of 1,000 subscribers a month in Australia since August.

"Since we began offering iPSTAR services, the product has consistently provided our customers with the reliability, security and speed they expect. The performance and scalability of the iPSTAR solution allows us to offer a variety of services to our customers now and into the future," said Gordon Tudor, director at IPA service provider and partner Australia Private Networks.

IPA partners are providing iPSTAR services starting from only A$29.95 ($22.39) a month under the Australian government's Broadband Connect program. According to IPA estimates, the market is composed of around 1 million households and small businesses in Australia and New Zealand.

"The iPSTAR satellite system provides a reliable, ubiquitous, and affordable broadband solution, enabling us to meet the needs of remote Australia and New Zealand," said IPA general manager Teerasak Sawekpun. "We expect to reach the 10,000 subscriber mark in Australia early 2007. This speaks well of the quality of our IPSTAR services and the capability to deploy and support our customers of our operations in Australia."

Including its Australian customers, Shin Satellite now has more than 50,000 satellite user terminals in Asia Pacific.
