Terrestar Global Applauds European Commission Decision

    London (ots/PRNewswire) - TerreStar Global Ltd. applauds the European Commission approval of a proposal to select and authorize mobile satellite services at the pan-European level. The Commission decision advances the first-ever European wide licensing process for advanced communications services, such as high speed data, two-way voice, and innovative broadband and emergency communications applications throughout Europe.

    If adopted by Parliament and Council, today's proposed new mechanism will ensure that there is one, not 27 markets in Europe for mobile satellite services. Stakeholders and Member States have strongly supported this proposal for EU-wide coordination because satellite communications reach across borders and significant economies of scale will result from consistent national authorisations throughout Europe.

    "The new way the Commission proposes today to select mobile satellite services will give Europe's industry the necessary confidence to invest in new EU-wide services for citizens. It will also help bridge the digital divide by improving coverage in the EU's remote areas" said Viviane Reding, the EU's Telecoms Commissioner.

    "Commissioner Reding and her colleagues have adopted a very important decision that will enable Europe to assert global leadership with the next generation of mobile satellite services," said Robert Brumley, CEO of TerreStar Global. "Ms. Reding has demonstrated tremendous leadership to advance this proposal and I agree with her wholeheartedly that this proposal will 'help bridge the digital divide by improving coverage in the EU's remote areas' as well as advance 'public protection and disaster relief."
