Thuraya extends its European network to service Andorra
Thuraya Satellite Telecommunications Company has signed an agreement with IEC, a Telecommunication company operating in Andorra to become Thuraya service provider there. With this agreement, Thuraya's list of Service Providers in the coverage area goes up to 49, just as others are slated for finalization within the first quarter of the year 2002.
Thuraya's Service Provider agreement garners IEC the rights to distribute and market Thuraya's mobile satellite services and products throughout Andorra. The agreement also enables IEC to market user terminals and SIM cards as well as manage billing and customer care.
Speaking about Thuraya's presence in Andorra, IEC Managing Director Yves Emilian said “Andorra with its strategic location in between Spain and France, serves as a vital link to tourists who have to travel over this mountainous country to get to other side of Europe. Therefore, I definitely see a great demand for Thuraya in the tourism sector and in key accounts and business to consumers.” — (menareport.com)
