Shin Satellite has signed a cooperation agreement with TIME dotCom, Malaysia's leading telecom solutions provider, for the deployment of IPSTAR broadband satellite services in Malaysia in the fourth quarter.


Under the agreement, the IPSTAR gateway will be located in TIME's existing facilities in Kuala Lumpur.


IPSTAR will enable TIME to expand its broadband services to serve the rural and underserved markets in Malaysia, targeting the government's Universal Service Provision as well as market segments such as corporate and retail.


In addition to providing services to TIME, the IPSTAR service will be marketed to other service providers in Malaysia as well.
