T. Sanford Jewett, Vice President of Marketing at Thuraya said: “Thuraya is proud to sponsor Sebastian and his work. In tough environments where he operates, communications infrastructure can be unreliable or insecure. Many leading global news organizations currently rely on Thuraya’s technology to deliver breaking news. We believe that the Thuraya IP+ will provide Sebastian with an added layer of security and protection, in addition to facilitating his work by allowing him to file breaking news stories with videos and photos on time. The Thuraya IP+’s “always-on’ mobile broadband access and asymmetric streaming capabilities allows him to stay in close contact with his loved ones too.”
Sebastian Meyer, freelance photographer, multimedia journalist and co-founder of Iraq’s first and only photo agency called Metrography said: “Infrastructure here in Iraq is in terrible shape with electricity cuts part of our daily life. For reporters and photographers who need to file their work on time, this can be a serious problem as communication lines often fail. Thuraya’s IP+ satellite broadband terminal for Metrography will be a significant help in delivering stories from corners of the country often cut off from electricity and the Internet.”
