Pakistan has launched its second communication satellite, PAKSAT MM-1, to boost the country’s digital communication network. This advanced satellite was launched from China’s Xichang Satellite Launch Center and will settle into orbit 36,000 kilometers above Earth.

PAKSAT MM-1, weighing five tons, is equipped with cutting-edge communication technology. It aims to meet the growing demand for high-speed internet and seamless connectivity across Pakistan. The satellite will provide services in C, Ku, Ka Bands, and SBAS in L Band, making it a crucial addition to the nation’s communication infrastructure.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif praised this significant achievement, noting that it will help transform Pakistan into a digital nation. He emphasized the importance of this launch in advancing the country’s technological capabilities and improving communication services for both urban and rural areas.

With PAKSAT MM-1 in orbit, Pakistan is expected to see improvements in various sectors, including education, healthcare, and business, by providing better internet access and communication solutions. The satellite’s deployment is a significant step towards building a more connected and digitally empowered nation.
