Or was it aliens? Amazing video of the object flying past at the time of the explosion. Looks to me like a fast moving drone or something that may have fired on the SpaceX. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2w9UCKlXkzI
Facebook will be wanting to find a replacement fast for their Amos-6 loss. It will take over 3 years for a Amos-6 replacement to be built and launched. Facebook cannot wait that long that is for sure. May end up doing a similar deal with Avanti now as their only choice of ready available Sats just where they need them. Think we will be hearing something very soon.
Rumours around that the Amos-6 was sabotaged as there are people out there trying to stop the Facebook steamroller plus the Israeli's being involved. It was a highly unusual explosion that destroyed the Amos-6. Plus Amos-5 was lost in unusually circumstances.
My first thought on the ad: great! Second thought: they should save the cash and by doing this are they not opening themselves up for legal action from among others small retail investors like us? Third thought: because they are under rule 2.6 (M&A process ongoing) they are extremely restricted in their communications and all their spending is scrutinised to the extreme by the potential buyers at this moment. Maybe it means that "step 2" of the funding plan is not dilutive to current equity holders and/or that the M&A process is very likely to be successful.
Re Facebook: on African "fibre in the sky", AVN is miles ahead of Facebook in every aspect ranging from infrastructure to distribution/delivery. However because Facebook is Facebook everybody is looking with admiration at facebook's plans with Africa. It's time AVN gets the recognition it deserves.
I agree with Slippery , this advertorial is exactly what we need , it covers delivering broadband in Africa which could be transformative for personal banking, e-learning and even health! It reinforces for not only PI's but also dare I say it large companies (facebook facebook facebook) the potential here. I know that some have already said the only potential for AVN is roadkill beside the rocket pad but for me its in a possible take over.Facebook have been mentioned but I favour if a takeover is in the offing then the Chinese have been mentioned before and they deffo have a need for space domination and of course they are already all over Africa because of its minerals why not take over the communication infrastructure as well.
Exactly what I said they should be doing months ago. Splashing their name all over the place. Promote the business and get those contracts and money rolling in. This is what the americans are good at and why they are more successful. Need to think outside the box.
seaniebb 14.05 - what is the point of that link? Avanti paid for it by the looks of it. I find it more worrying that they feel the need to promote the company at this time. The investors I'm interested in won't be affected by that advert. It is aimed at speculative PI's imo.
