Third Inmarsat global broadband satellite jets into Kazakhstan

The third Global Xpress satellite will provide complete global broadband coverage.


Inmarsat’s third Global Xpress satellite has arrived at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan ahead of its launch later this month.

After leaving the Boeing El Segundo facility in California, the satellite was flown on an Antonov AN-124 heavy transporter.

The third GX satellite, combined with the two already in orbit, will allow the provider to offer seamless, global broadband coverage.

Michele Franci, CTO of Inmarsat, said: "We are approaching the completion of our GX constellation and the arrival of Inmarsat-5 F3 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome is another significant milestone.

"For the first time, we will be able to deliver seamless, superfast broadband communications across the globe – on land, sea and in the air – from one single operator."
