Thuraya Telecommunications, yesterday announced it has signed a Service Partner agreement with Pivotel Group of Australia.

As a licensed mobile carrier, Pivotel will provide Thuraya's products and services across Australia and Southern Asia.

The Company supports Australia's largest installed base of mobile satellite users including voice, data and M2M services. The addition of Thuraya's suite of products further complements Pivotel's current product range and will enhance its position as Australia's premier mobile satellite service provider across several vertical markets including mining, transport, maritime, professional trades, emergency services, construction and consumers.

Pivotel's Chief Executive Officer, Peter Bolger said "We chose to partner with Thuraya because of its innovative product range including the Thuraya XT-DUAL, which provides both GSM and satellite services. This dual-mode handheld provides outstanding value and utility to regional, remote and urban-based Australians looking to extend their mobile phone service coverage." He added, "The Thuraya IP terminal delivers an outstanding high-speed mobile data service which is in high demand and delivers enormous connectivity and productivity gains to individuals and organisations across the country." Thuraya's Vice President of Distribution, Muiz A. Saad said: "We are pleased to welcome Pivotel to Thuraya's Service Partner network. We are confident that the Australian market will be well-served by such a highly experienced provider of mobile satellite communications services. Pivotel is well positioned to offer the next generation of Thuraya's services to its current and future customers." Pivotel's Thuraya services will utilise standard Australia mobile numbers than can be ported from their current service provider to Pivotel. Users of Thuraya will benefit from outstanding value on their GSM mobile services and for a small premium can access Thuraya's satellite network from virtually anywhere in Australia. To add, customers of the dual mode services will not be charged to receive incoming calls and callers to a Pivotel Thuraya phone will pay normal call to mobile rates. Pivotel will launch a range of call plans which together with the Thuraya XT DUAL handsets will provide customers with a low cost, easy to use, unmatched Mobile Everywhere service". – Emirates News Agency, WAM
