Lynk Successfully Deploys Two More Orbital 'Cell Phone Towers in Space'

Lynk Global, Inc. ("Lynk"), the world's leading satellite-direct-to-mobile-phone ("Sat2Phone") telecoms provider, today announced the successful deployment of two more "cell-towers-in-space." The satellites will further Lynk's efforts to provide universal mobile connectivity. The two satellite cell towers were launched on the Transporter-10 rideshare mission launched by SpaceX on March 4 from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.

"The successful deployment of our latest cell towers in space furthers our mission to connect everyone, everywhere. It also continues our momentum to enable Sat2Phone services globally as each satellite enhances our network resiliency and increases our mobile coverage," said Lynk CTO and co-founder Tyghe Speidel. Speidel continued "these satellites also have new capabilities and improvements across many systems compared to our previous birds … a fast rate of innovation at lowr costs is enabled by our strategy of rapidly-iterating satellite technology."

Since deployment on orbit, these satellites have been in contact with Lynk's ground operations and are progressing through their commissioning process. Once cleared for operational service, these satellites will provide mobile connectivity, eventually serving all of Lynk's 40 plus mobile network operator partners spanning Earth. Lynk's previously launched satellites have proven their capability across the globe. Lynk believes it remains the only company in the world to receive a commercial license for Sat2Phone service from the Federal Communications Commission and is currently providing commercial service to Lynk's global customer network around the world.
