Satellite operator ProtoStar has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the USA. It will sell its two satellites. The Delaware Bankruptcy Court is handling the case for ProtoStar and its associated businesses.

As on russian forums being rumoured, one of possible customers is GTSS - Due to dead/half working satellites at 80E/53E, they're in deficit of satellite capacity.

Two years ago I was talking to one of local billionaires assistant, they wanted to invest in IT/Hitech stuff. I suggested them to do own satellite, they've decided to do undersea cable...
