Astranis partners with Thaicom to provide Thaicom-9 satellite over Asia

Our tenth MicroGEO satellite announced, for a global leader in satellite telecommunications

Astranis will launch more satellites to GEO than the rest of the industry combined. We’ve already announced 9 satellites for places from Mexico to the Philippines.

Today we’re announcing our 10th project: a new dedicated satellite for Thaicom, a leading Asian satellite provider.

Ten satellites is a lot in GEO. With ten satellites, Astranis is covering millions of people with affordable, reliable internet. And we mean affordable for anyone. In the Philippines, many end customers will only pay $2 or $3 per month for a small amount of data.

But our direct customers are enterprises like telcos and service providers. We help them expand — and we offer services that nobody else can. Like dedicated satellites on demand. Thaicom, our new customer, needed connectivity FAST. They wanted something new on orbit in 2025.

Legacy satellite companies announced their 2025 satellites years ago, as early as 2020. Building massive satellites takes a lot of time. Too much time. If you need new, dedicated service in the near-term, only Astranis can help. We build our satellites in months, not years.

We are beyond excited to partner with Thaicom. They are sophisticated buyer of satellite services who have decades of experience in the industry. The CEO calls us “a pioneering and fast-emerging global satellite provider” and we're proud to take on that mantle.

We’re going to launch 20 satellites over the next three years, and 100 satellites by 2030. How? It’s simple, really. By offering something that nobody else can, with the best technology coming out of Silicon Valley, and at prices that nobody else can match.
