February 21, 2024 – Avanti Communications announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with one of the world’s largest and most innovative satellite operators, Telesat to test and develop LEO services as part of its global strategy to deliver bespoke, multi-orbit solutions to customers at scale. Avanti plans to incorporate Telesat’s Lightspeed™ services into its network to provide affordable, high quality broadband connectivity worldwide. Telesat’s innovative global network is composed of 198 state-of-the-art LEO satellites that are seamlessly integrated with on-ground networks.
