Kymeta Announces Commercial Availability of KĀLO™ Mobile Internet Access Services
Kymeta—the communications company making good on the promise of global, mobile connectivity—and Intelsat S.A. (NYSE:I)—operator of the world’s first globalized network—have announced that Kymeta KĀLO internet access is now available with broad initial geographic coverage. Kymeta is redefining how satellite services are purchased with KĀLO internet services, and making mobile communications as easy to buy as a mobile phone plan.
KĀLO internet services, powered by the IntelsatOne® Flex network, deliver broad connectivity when paired with the world’s only commercially available flat panel, electronically-steered satellite terminals from Kymeta as well as other satellite terminal solutions. Kymeta™ KyWay™ terminals and mTennau7 antenna subsystem modules open new markets for the satellite industry and allow organizations that require high-bandwidth mobile internet access to do business while on the move. For sectors that have traditionally had difficulty accessing reliable, affordable internet in the past—connected cars, renewable energy, commercial fishing, rail, bus and more—KĀLO provides a one-of-a-kind solution.
“With KĀLO, Kymeta delivers up to 4 Mbps mobile internet service in familiar by-the-gigabyte plans,” said Dushyant Sukhija, Senior Vice President and General Manager, KĀLO Business Unit, Kymeta. “The release of KĀLO marks a revolutionary change in the way satellite services are purchased and supplied. KĀLO services provide a scalable, flexible, high-performance, high-throughput network with a broad geographic footprint, and we make that happen with service packages that are as easy to buy as a cell phone plan.”
The partnership between Kymeta and Intelsat is bringing mobile communication to places it has never been before. “Users are demanding connectivity that could not be delivered with traditional networks,” said Mark Rasmussen, VP and General Manager, Mobility, Intelsat. “Our investment in Kymeta was driven by the desire to simplify and accelerate access to cost-effective connectivity, pairing a groundbreaking global satellite network with a groundbreaking satellite terminal. KĀLO is proof that our technology and business model innovations are unlocking new and larger applications.”
KĀLO is perfect for situations where companies need to have consistent OPEX pricing for their global mobile and fixed internet services. Initial KĀLO deployments include fixed environments like construction sites, on-the-pause environments like RVs, and mobile environments like trains and smaller maritime vessels. Customers—including the renewable energy industry service specialists at FMC GlobalSat—conducted pre-availability evaluations of KĀLO and saw the difference firsthand.
“Kymeta mTenna™ technology with KĀLO internet services make sense for the renewable energy industry, and for any other industry in need of high bandwidth mobile communications,” said Adam Ferguson, Chief Technology Officer, FMC GlobalSat. “We were able to commission KĀLO remotely to a KyWay terminal we had deployed in the field. I’ve worked in the power and telecommunications industries for more than a decade and this is the easiest service provisioning and commissioning process I have ever experienced. KĀLO internet services open up a world of possibilities that were not possible until now.”
What’s the missing link to connecting billions of people to high-speed mobile access? Antennas. And Kymeta offers the world’s only commercially-viable electronically-scanning satellite antennas and terminals. Kymeta antennas and terminals deliver high-throughput communications for land, sea, and air, making mobile connectivity as available as a view of the sky. Plus, the world’s largest satellite operator, Intelsat, has joined forces with Kymeta to deliver KĀLO global access services that combine with Kymeta antennas and terminals to provide revolutionary mobile connectivity. Without Kymeta mTenna™ technology, connecting and staying connected to all those new satellites while on the move will be difficult, if not impossible.
If it moves, Kymeta will keep it connected. Anywhere.

Intelsat’s Globalized Network combines the world’s largest satellite backbone with terrestrial infrastructure, managed services and an open, interoperable architecture to enable customers to drive revenue and reach through a new generation of network services.

Kela: Contrary to Reports, the Basic Income Experiment in Finland Will Continue until the End of 201825.4.2018 10:31 | Tiedote
Many international media-outlets have published stories alleging that Finland is going to discontinue its basic income experiment. This information is incorrect. “The experiment is proceeding according to plan and will continue until the end of 2018”, says Professor Olli Kangas, the leader of the research team at Kela (Social Insurance Institution of Finland). There are currently no plans to continue or expand the experiment after 2018. The effects will be studied after the experiment has ended The employment effects across the whole experiment will be available by the end of 2019 or at the beginning of 2020. “The effects of the experiment will not be published while the experiment is in progress, because a public discussion of the results could influence the behaviour of the test and control groups. That would lead to skewed results”, Kangas says. The basic income experiment was launched in January 2017. During the experiment, the 2,000 participants are receiving a EUR 560 monthly bas
