NBNCo has shortlisted its Satellite Operators
The Australian Newspaper within Mitchell Bingemann's article have indicated that the NBNCo has shortlisted Satellite Operators based on an earlier Request for Capability Statement.
It identifies that Optus, Intelsat and Hughes Network Systems are understood to be on the shortlist. This would also indicate that NBNCo is interested in a 3rd party operating the Satellite network, rather than purchasing the satellites themselves.
More will be known when NBNCo releases the RFT in a few weeks time.
