Check out the launch event: MEASAT-3 launch website
KUALA LUMPUR: The launch of the Measat-3 satellite today from Kazakhstan's Baikonur Cosmodrome will triple Malaysia’s satellite communication capacity.
For Malaysians, the new satellite will herald a significant change in their access to information through various avenues.
Malaysians will not only be able to enjoy a greater selection of television channels but also have easy access to the Internet using high-speed connections, which will be available throughout the country.
This will be possible with the new high bandwidth, Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) networks, which leverages the latest satellite technology to reduce cost and increase efficiency.
The satellite's launch will also expand the Measat fleet's coverage to more than 100 countries embracing Australia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and Africa, representing about 70% of the world's population.
