Satellite Internet terminals of the Swedish company Satcube have been delivered to Ukraine. They can be used in the occupied territories where mobile and terrestrial networks do not work. This was stated by Satcube founder and CEO Jacob Kallmer, writes European Pravda» referring to Dagens Nyheter.
At the same time, the company does not know whether its equipment will be used by the military, but does not object to it.
This can be anything from connecting to field hospitals to maintaining communications in the field,” says Jakob Kallmer.
The Ukrainian side paid attention to this company after several humanitarian organizations and journalists used its equipment to work in our country.
Satcube uses the satellite network of the American company Intelsat, which has placed an order for the supply of terminals worth approximately SEK 70 million (EUR 5.97 million). The cost of the equipment will be paid by Germany, which will hand it over.
For the Swedish company, this is the largest order since the start of terminal production in 2017. In the first stage, the company plans to supply Ukraine with about 100 portable Internet terminals. The first terminals arrived in Ukraine in early summer.
The Swedish company’s portable Internet terminal weighs about 8 kg. It can provide broadband access via geostationary satellites at speeds of up to 70 megabits per second.
Since the beginning of the large-scale invasion, more than 40 thousand terminals connected to the Starlink satellite network have been delivered to Ukraine.
