Satellite Today has some Thuraya news:

Thuraya has announced a slew of distribution agreements for its ThurayaIP service, the company said July 28.  The operator has signed distribution agreements with: Fort Info Technology, GPTC, IEC, Indigo Airtime Ltd, NSSL, Satcom Group, Xsat Fze and Xtra-Link throughout the last few weeks. According to Thuraya, these distributors have established networks and extensive expertise in telecom retail and will cover all of Thuraya’s markets spanning Europe and Africa to the Middle East and Asia Pacific.
“The quick rollout of almost the whole first batch of ThurayaIP was largely anticipated, due to market need and the overall quality of the product, all in size, performance and pricing aspects,” Thuraya CEO Yousuf Al Sayed said in a statement. “The distribution chain has been upbeat and excited for its launch, which is driving the marketing momentum.”
