Yes, I have, but neither of them seem to know much about upcoming coverage in Central America.  Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself since this bird won't be up and in synchronous orbit till near the end of the year, and it seems prices, packages, and new coverage domains have yet to be specified. However, I'm bugging out in December and would like to become a certified dealer before I depart.  If you know anyone that can assist please advise or pass this msg on to them.  Thx

Latest I have James is the SAT is still maneuvering to position for it's final parking space in orbit.  I'm guessing they will be in final orbit in NOV and begins. testing and diagnosis.  I still haven't found anyone that can provide pricing, probably because the quality of service and geographical range has yet to be verified.  Like Brad says, we are probably looking at Spring 2018, but I'll be watching closely/
