KUALA LUMPUR, June 18 (Bernama) — Abu Dhabi-based Thuraya Telecommunications Co has appointed Teknikkom Electronic, which specialises in the wireless communications business, as the Malaysian distributor for its satellite handheld phones.

According to Thuraya, the appointment is part of the roll-out of its cutting-edge services and products in the Asia Pacific region.

In a statement released here today, Thuraya said the availability of satellite handheld phones will allow the Malaysian market to enjoy a complementary solution to existing terrestrial applications.

Its executive manager, business development, Abdallah Touhami, said the Thuraya products are expected to be widely absorbed by several sectors such as oil and gas, non-government organisation (NGO), government and corporate.

“We are target these sectors as well as individual users located in remote areas,” he said.

He also said that Thuraya’s broadband and maritime solutions as well as other specialised applications will help enhance communications for high-speed data users and maritime customers in Malaysia.

Teknikkom’s managing director Shamsul Majidi said the partnership with Thuraya provided local customers with the option of a high-quality voice solution.

“It will also provide a vital communication link to support local industries, especially in non-terrestrial network areas, as well as for customers who travel outside of Malaysia,” he said. — BERNAMA

That’s great but the real question is what are Thuraya up to with their cal rates.

With the call rates going up 42% as of the 15 July how competitive do they really think they will be. I don’t understand the logic in such an enormous price hike in airtime.

So congratulations Teknikkom I hope they cam make ago of it.
