SES World Skies' NSS-6 has secured a fascinating 100 MHz contract from Astel, a telecoms operator in Kazakhstan.

The contract is to deliver the first high-speed mobile broadband and phone services to train passengers traveling the busiest commuter trains in Kazakhstan. NSS-6 will deliver Internet access, email and VoIP telephony services to National Railway Company passengers traveling the 1,300 kilometer route between Kazakhstan's largest city Almaty and its capital, Astana.
