Mobile Satellite Ventures (MSV) Plans Extension of Current Generation Satellite Services

Mobile Satellite Ventures (MSV), majority owned and controlled by SkyTerra Communications (OTC BB: SKYT.OB), announced that the company has plans to extend their current generation network voice and mobile data services through 2011. In addition, Mobile Satellite will utilize their next generation hybrid satellite-terrestrial communications network slated to be launched in 2010.

MSV’s next generation communications network will include a specially-designed network interface that will enable existing satellite communications customers to operate on their next generation satellite network without any service delay. During the deployment of MSV’s next generation services, customers will not need new hardware additions or upgrades to continue operating the Company’s current CGS and MDS network terminals.

John Mattingly, president of Satellite Services for MSV, commented, “Responding to the existing and anticipated future needs of our customers, MSV will maintain its current generation services during the roll-out of and transition to the company’s next generation hybrid satellite-terrestrial services. Our new satellites and hybrid-satellite terrestrial service will redefine wireless communications as we know it today.”

Mattingly added, “While we are very excited about developing a powerful and cost-effective range of new communications offerings on our new satellites, we also want to allow our current core network voice and mobile data customers the opportunity to continue using their existing equipment for an extended period of time, and then seamlessly transition to our new services when they become available.”
