So to follow on to the below:

Here be the SN article with the relevant quotage.

Blue Origin signs up third customer for New Glenn

Quote
“We have entered into an agreement with mu Space on a future launch of a geostationary satellite aboard New Glenn early in the next decade,” Meyerson said. “We look forward to launching mu Space to serve the people of Thailand and the Asia-Pacific region.”

Quote
“We’ve decided to go with Blue Origin because we’re impressed with the company’s vision and engineering approach,” said James Yenbamroong, chief executive of mu Space, in a statement. “We want to deliver equitable access to communication services for all and improve quality of life on Earth.”

Quote
“The response to New Glenn has been phenomenal,” said Meyerson. He reiterated plans announced earlier this month that, based on customer feedback, the company would move directly to a payload fairing 7 meters in diameter, skipping an interim 5.4-meter fairing.

It sound like Mu Space is starting out as the local satellite service provider for Thailand using other companies for initial spectrum, followed by their own dedicated satellite as a follow-on ( hence reservation for the Blue Origin flight)

Looking at their LinkedIn page, it seems they already have a deal in place with the Thailand government, so while young (founded 2017) they do seem to have their ducks in order, though I wonder whether or not Thailand itself is funding the company.

Thai satellite and space technology company mu Space Corp has signed a deal to support Thailand’s transition to a digital economy.

The multilateral agreement, signed between mu Space, Thai government agency Digital Economy Promotion Agency (DEPA), state-owned telco CAT Telecom and other private organizations, calls for cooperation to build a Digital Park and an Internet of Things (IoT) Institute in Thailand to help fast-track the country’s digital transformation.

I hadn't heard of them until the Blue announcement. Here's a link to their homepage: https://www.muspacecorp.com/

They're a bit further down in the search results due to myspace :/

Mu Space issued a RFP for their first satellite:

Quote
SINGAPORE (mu Space PR) — mu Space Corp, a Thailand-based space and satellite company, has approved the release of a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a manufacturer to build the company’s first satellite with coverage spanning across Asia-Pacific.

The high throughput satellite will be on a geostationary orbit (GEO) location at 50.5-degree East, an orbital slot secured on a recent agreement between mu Space and SES, the world’s leading satellite operator. It is expected to provide broadband and Internet of Things (IoT) service via satellite, and will have a lifespan of at least 15 years.
