The launch of Malaysia's first satellite, MEASAT in 1996 marked Malaysia's entry into space-age communications, impacting the communications, information and entertainment sectors. MEASAT is specially designed to provide both state-of-the-art communications and direct-to-user services.

From its orbital slot 91.5 degrees East, MEASAT's footprint covers most of East Asia, reaching over 1 billion people. The owner and operator of MEASAT, MEASAT Satellite Systems Sdn. Bhd., will provide integrated voice, video and data services, greatly increasing Malaysia's capacity to exchange information economically and reliably with all parts of the world.
