According to a release, Alruya will utilize the capacity on SES's NSS-7 satellite at 20 degrees West to provide high-speed internet access and voice over IP services over its VSAT network to its corporate customers' offsite oil and gas locations in Libya.
"We are pleased to have found a new partner in SES, which has enabled us to provide seamless connectivity to our customers. Not only is SES's NSS-7 coverage over Libya optimal, but also the professional SES team has made it easy for us to ramp up and double our capacity in the last few months," said Murad Tantush, CEO of Alruya.
