WorldSpace has received licenses for terrestrial repeaters for its satellite radio services from the telecommunications regulatory authorities of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates for terrestrial repeater networks.
The licenses will enable WorldSpace to deploy mobile satellite radio services in those countries. WorldSpace plans to rollout the mobile services in the first half of 2006. Chairman/CEO Noah Samara said the rollout is part of the company’s strategy to target additional markets within its coverage area at a minimal incremental cost.
