Tareq established Prime Satcom Consulting Ltd in 2003. Tareq has led Prime Satcom Consulting successfully during its first year, working to set up and run Orbit Research Ltd’s Satellite Broadband sales business in the UK and internationally and to provide a key consultantcy to PetroData Ltd to research and advise on the best satellite global solution for their new Oil Pump monitoring system. At the start of its second year, Tareq has led the set up of a service provision division of Prime Satcom Consulting, called Prime Satellite Broadband.
Prime Satellite Broadband has since grown and is a successful satellite company with key corporate and Governmant accounts and serving many small businesses and consumers, mainly in the UK, but with customers in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
When the UK 4G mobile network started to expand and provide reliable broadband services in 2016, Tareq started to provide services on the mobile networks. Tareq led Prime Satcom Consulting to quickly learn the new 4G LTE technologies and supplier chains to be able to serve this new market. Tareq teamed up with Jola Cloud Solutions to deliver their services which today include multi-network eSIMs and Private APN solutions at competative prices and versatile solutions.
With Prime Satcom Consulting Ltd being in business for 17 years now, Tareq continues to lead the Company and is actively seeking more growth and looking at other complementary technologies such as 5G LTE and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites to strengthen the service offerings in the near future.
