Mobile satellite connectivity specialist Anuvu has signed a deal to resell Starlink services as plans to use a rival constellation proposed by Telesat remain uncertain, reports Space News.

Anuvu said it has permission to resell broadband from SpaceX’s low Earth orbit (LEO) network to maritime customers, complementing the services it already provides in this and other markets from geostationary orbit (GEO).

Deal to resell Starlink services

Los Angeles-headquartered Anuvu leases capacity from dozens of GEO satellites to provide Wi-Fi on boats, aircraft, and remote locations worldwide.

Around the middle of this year, SpaceX is slated to launch the first two small GEO satellites for Anuvu’s dedicated constellation. Anuvu ordered the satellite from Astranis in 2021 four months after emerging from bankruptcy protection.

The dedicated satellites are part of an expansion plan that in February 2022 saw Anuvu sign “the largest yet in a series of satellite capacity deals” with Telesat, a Canadian company with a fleet of GEO satellites.

Their agreement covered capacity on GEO satellites using terminals designed to be forward-compatible with the Canadian operator’s proposed Lightspeed LEO constellation.
