Tokyo, Japan, 29 March 1998 (TS-ASIA) -- Germany's DeTeSat, a unit of
Deutsche Telekom, has leased C-band capacity on AsiaSat 2 to provide voice,
data and image transmission services throughout the C.I.S. region.

Initially, the capacity will be used to establish satellite links between

expand our services over the C.I.S. and other regions, forming part of our
global satellite communications network," said Mr. Gerd Scheuermann,
Managing Director of DeTeSat.

"We use AsiaSat 2 because it offers excellent coverage. In one single beam,
we can offer satellite communications services stretching from Moscow to
the Russian Far East, reaching cities such as Vladivostok and Khabarovsk,"
he added.

Headquartered in Bonn, Germany, DeTeSat is a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom
AG. Deutsche Telekom currently operates 3,500 VSAT stations in Europe. The
