WorldSat Communications Network, also known as WorldSat CommNet, is a corporation with a monopoly on large scale satellite communications based in Paris, France. It is one of the largest corporations Europe has to offer.

Overview[]

WorldSat CommNet has the monopoly on large-scale satellite communications, and is responsible for the transmission of telephone, military, computer, and commercial data. These communications are crucial worldwide, and their disruption could be disastrous. WorldSat invests a great deal in making sure this does not happen. The satellites are even shielded against electromagnetic pulses, although no one is really sure how well this will work. Although it is illegal, it is also possible for WorldSat to monitor any of the communications it is transmitting.[1]

By 2045, WorldSat continued to retain its international rule over direct audiovisual communication between cities across the world.[2]

In 2077, Aymeric Cassel falsified his personal scans to indicate he was affiliated with the company.[3]

Each office also had two helicopters and a surgical infirmary. WorldSat's satellites are crucial to many nation's communications. Consequently, most high-tech military hardware is available to them on short notice. WorldSat has a large, well-protected orbital service facility.[1]
