A new teleport has been opened by SES in Douglas.
It can support up to four nine meter antennas, a power and telecommunications infrastructure, control centre and connectivity to satellites in space.
Minister for Enterprise Laurence Skelly formally opened the state-of-the-art facility.
He says: "I welcome the investment by SES in the new teleport which will significantly enhance the Island’s status as a burgeoning media cluster and will provide further reassurance to potential investors in the technology sector that the Island’s infrastructure is well-placed to support a wide range of digital media and telecommunications activities."
President and CEO of SES Steve Collar said: "Since SES was established in the Isle of Man back in 2004, we have had a very positive and supportive relationship with the Isle of Man Government.
"In addition to being able to use this state-of-the-art teleport to provide services for SES’ own satellite fleet, we will be using the site to support the broadcast of the annual International Isle of Man TT motorcycle races and other events."
