EL SEGUNDO, Calif. and GEORGE TOWN, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

Boeing [NYSE:BA] will build a 702 satellite, called GiSAT, with a new digital payload offering twice the capacity as previous digital payload designs.

The customer, Cayman Islands-based Global IP, will use the satellite to provide streaming media, digital broadcast and other communications services in Sub-Saharan Africa. With a coverage area encompassing 35 countries and 750 million people, GiSAT will deliver higher data rates at lower costs than previous satellites serving this part of the world.
