Second NBN Satellite to Boost Sky Muster Dependability and Capacity
Great news for everyone in Australia: the National Broadband Network’s Sky Muster™ II post-launch manoeuvres are right on schedule.
According to Space Daily, Space Systems Loral, responsible for building the internet satellite, have done all needed manoeuvres for the Sky Muster™ II and it’s right on schedule, with deployment of its solar arrays aboard the Ariane 5.
Further reports said its main thrusters, which will propel it toward its final geostationary orbit, have also been launched.
“The two nbn™ satellites are very sophisticated and complex high throughput satellites that will bring broadband internet to people that can’t be reached by the country’s fibre, cable, and wireless networks […] SSL commends nbn™ on the implementation of its vision, which is improving the quality of life for so many people.”
-SSL President John Celi
The first nbn™ satellite, which was launched last 2015, was also built by SSL.
The Sky Muster™ and Sky Muster™ II aim to work together to provide higher capacity and dependable service to Australia’s hard to reach citizens, from remote and rural areas on the mainland in addition to those from the offshore islands like Norfolk, Christmas, Lord Hower, Cocos and even Macquarie in the Antarctic.
nbn™ CEO Bill Morrow boasted the benefits that the two satellites will bring and said, “Sky Muster II, working in concert with the Sky Muster I satellite, will help bring essential services such as telehealth, videoconferencing, and distance education to people in regional and remote Australia.”
With the two satellite Internet now in place and everything happening like clockwork, Australians can expect that more areas will now have access to a stable and speedy Internet connection, courtesy of nbn™.
