We have the skills and facilities to deliver that growth as well as access to an unprecedented range of connectivity and technical options,” said Ian Jones, CEO and Co-Founder of Goonhilly Earth Station Ltd, the privately held company which acquired the iconic 164-acre Cornwall site from BT in 2014.
