The largest Italian independent teleport, Milano Teleport has shifted the focus of its operations. The business’s main focus has been DTH (Direct-to-Home) since it was established in 2002 utilising an uplink to a Hotbird satellite operated by Eutelsat. However the main broadcasting customer of the teleport ceased to buy capacity in 2011. Since that time the company has re-focused its operation on supplying VSAT broadband. Gallo stated that Milano Teleport is currently trading in its fifth consecutive year of growth, with marine applications at the centre of its target market.
