The China Transportation & Telecommunication Center (CTT) recently announced in Qingdao that the fourth generation of maritime satellites will complete their adjustments for global coverage on February 24, 2009. Starting February 25, the system will be capable of providing convenient, high-speed mobile broadband satellite services on land, at sea and in the air.

From now on, the maritime satellite broadband services will truly realize global coverage. This adjustment will allow the company's users to have access to high-speed digital transmission and video communication anywhere in the world, with Internet connection speeds reaching a maximum of 432 Kbps.

Currently, CTT is the only operator authorized by the State Council to operate and manage maritime satellite services within the territory of China. To date, CTT and its partner Inmarsat operate a total of 11 satellites. After February 25, Inmarsat will provide the most up-to-date satellite coverage, enabling them going forward to offer broadband service to users on land, at sea and in the air.
