New 13.5m Ka-Band Antenna Reflector Successfully Lifted

Today was an exciting day at the Teleport; the new 13.5m Ka-Band antenna’s reflector was successfully lifted and positioned onto the pedestal.

This antenna will provide services for Trio Connect LLC and makes quite an impression on the Lawford Heath skyline.

Starting in mid-2016, TRIO will be offering Triple Play services on the new Badr-7 satellite. Servicing 6 to 10 countries initially, TRIO is planned to expand to 40- 50 countries by 2022 serving over a 1.5 million households directly and millions more via shared terminals thereafter.

Be sure to keep a close eye on our website; we will be posting a time-lapse video of the whole antenna build process in the near future.
