The three satellites will offer coverage in the Americas and have Ka-band technology and will be operated by Hispamar, the company’s Brazilian subsidiary.
According to Sergio Chaves, Hispamar’s Business Manager for South America, “the company pioneered in offering Ka-band for Latin America and maintains its commitment to this technology, as it reduces the unit cost of satellite services for Internet access, making it more competitive and helping to extend it to a larger number of people, not only those with greater purchasing power. Thus, a majority of citizens would have general access to the global network and greater demand could be generated in Brazil as well as other countries in the region.”
Chaves explained that Ka-band “is an ideal solution for broadband Internet connectivity as well as the backhaul of mobile networks and corporate services”. In addition, Mr Chaves announced that HISPAMAR is attempting to offer greater added value to its customers. To this end, they will develop strategic agreements with technology partners that will enable them to offer complete solutions to end customers, providing a wide-ranging response to their broadband communication needs.
