Philadelphia, PA-headquartered refiner Sunoco has signed a five-year contract with Spacenet for the provision of satellite networking and managed services connecting around 900 Sunoco retail outlets across the US. Sunoco locations will be upgraded to the Gilat SkyEdge VSAT platform, enabling faster speeds, stronger security and significantly improved bandwidth efficiency.
