Thuraya Telecommunications, and Chunghwa Telecom yesterday announced the historic milestone of receiving licensing approval from the NCC, Taiwan's national telecoms regulator, for the provision of Thuraya's mobile satellite services in the country.

The significance of this licensing agreement means that for the first time, Taiwanese consumers and enterprise users alike will no longer be required to apply for individual licensing approval from the NCC to use mobile satellite services in the country. Previously, only enterprise users were eligible for licensing approval of Mobile Satellite Services. With this historic agreement, Chunghwa Telecom's subscribers can benefit from Thuraya's voice, data and maritime services across its extensive satellite footprint covering over 140 countries in Africa, Asia Pacific, Australia, Europe and the Middle East.

Taiwan is considered a key growth market for Thuraya which is characterised by strong demand for reliable and cost-effective voice and data services from the fisheries sector. Thuraya MarineComms offers a range of products including the SF2500, dubbed the ultimate satellite phone at sea and the Seagull 5000 offering voice and data connectivity for medium to small vessels, fishing boats and yachts at sea. Thuraya also offers the world's most rugged satellite phone, the Thuraya XT and the ultra-lightweight Thuraya IP broadband terminal which are used by a variety of users from across the Maritime, Government, NGOs, Energy and Media sectors. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
