Saudi Telecommunication Company (STC) has expanded its relationship with Intelsat with the signing of a new contract for satellite services on Intelsat 15.

The additional connectivity from Intelsat 15 will enable STC, the largest telecom operator in Saudi Arabia, to grow VSAT services for corporate networks in the banking, government, and oil and gas sectors operating in the kingdom.

"As the largest telecommunications company in Saudi Arabia, STC knows the importance of keeping our corporate customers connected with the latest and most reliable communication technologies," said Walid Al Wabel, general manager, operations management, STC.

"Throughout our long-term relationship, Intelsat has demonstrated they understand our needs and allow us to advance our business with growth capacity that seamlessly integrates with our expansive network," he said.
