OmniGlobe buys BTIG
February 22, 2008
OmniGlobe Networks, specialist in delivering cellular, broadband Internet and VoIP services, has acquired Bandwidth Technologies International Group Limited (BTIG), the UK based international provider of satellite communications systems.
OmniGlobe Networks, the privately held Canadian group, acquired the entire equity of BTIG – including its principal trading subsidiary L-TEQ Limited. BTIG will become the operations and sales centre for OmniGlobe’s planned expansion of its existing business in the Middle East and Africa. David Harper, former managing director of L-TEQ Ltd, becomes managing director of OmniGlobe in the UK and head of OmniGlobe’s International Satellite Communications division.
OmniGlobe Networks specialises in the provision of telecommunications services in areas of the world where the conventional telecommunications infrastructure is often nonexistent. It deploys wireless internet and cellular services, using a combination of satellite backhaul infrastructure and its own proprietary software.
