Starlink, a satellite Internet constellation operated by Elon Musk's aerospace company SpaceX, enables activities requiring fast and stable Internet, such as streaming, video calls, online gaming, remote working, and more, in even the most remote locations.

REDtone is prepared to deploy the Starlink broadband services across the country

In a statement today, 28 November, REDtone, an integrated telecommunications and digital infrastructure services provider, announced its capability to swiftly deploy Starlink's broadband services across Malaysia.

With a team of over 150 dedicated engineers, REDtone said it aims to extend Starlink's high-speed Internet services to users in remote locations and areas facing geographical and environmental challenges.

REDtone CEO Lau Bik Soon expressed confidence in the company's ability to enhance connectivity and provide reliable broadband solutions through this partnership with Starlink

"We are targeting sectors which are showing an increasing reliance on satellite services such as oil and gas, telecommunications, shipping and maritime, financial services and plantations.

"These sectors are expected to be a significant driver of satellite market growth in the country and will enhance the company's profitability," he said.

This deal also means that Malaysia is one step closer to achieving 100% Internet penetration

According to Lau, only a remainder of 3% of the nation's population is residing in locations with restricted or no internet connectivity.

"This is where we come in to fill the broadband gap via satellite, to enable economic growth, provide access to education and healthcare, and enhance public safety," said Lau.

REDtone offers a range of enterprise-grade Satellite Managed Internet Services across the country

The internet service provider offers customers a fully managed service that includes monthly subscription plans, a designated accounts manager, expert engineering services, and effortless installation.

What stands out is their monthly subscription model, which removes the need for significant upfront hardware costs. Clients receive personalised assistance from a dedicated manager for solutions and network design advice. Furthermore, they have access to Redtone Customer Support through phone, email, and online channels.
