TS2 - - is the leading provider of domestic and global satellite access services. It has been providing its services to, amongst others: U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Defense, Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland, Command of Polish Navy, Government Protection Bureau (Poland), Polish National Police, Polish National Headquarters of the State Fire Services, and Border Guard (Poland).

TS2 services were, and still are, successfully used by troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. In these locations, reliable and independent satellite communications systems support military operations, guaranteeing their efficient execution. In addition, satellite communications systems also increase the level of security of persons taking part in military operations.

Satellite telecommunication systems are useful not only for the military. Emergency services, particularly those working in difficult conditions, where immediate response is crucial (e.g. at sea or in areas affected by natural disasters), also require an independent communications system.

The company also offers satellite phone rental for lovers of extreme tourism. In wild areas, where there is no human settlement over many hundreds of square miles, constant phone contact may increase the chances of safely surviving a trip of a lifetime.
