ARSAT Will Use SES-17 to Expand Satellite Broadband Connectivity in Argentina

Share

ARSAT, Argentina’s leading telecommunications company, will take advantage of SES’s recently launched high performance geostationary (GEO) satellite, SES-17, to deliver high-quality connectivity services. “We want to reach all areas of the country,” SES and ARSAT announced today. The multi-year agreement will allow ARSAT to provide reliable broadband satellite services starting in mid-2022.

By leveraging the capacity of SES-17, ARSAT will improve access to affordable and high-quality satellite broadband services for business and residential applications. In addition, ARSAT will use SES-17 to accelerate internet connectivity in public schools throughout the country in the framework of an agreement signed with the Ministry of Education.

Operating at 67 degrees West, SES-17 is the only high-performance Ka-band satellite currently operating in the Americas region with full coverage over the Argentine mainland. The satellite’s 200 fully flexible beams also make it ideal for bringing quality connectivity services across underserved communities across the country.

“It is widely recognised that improved connectivity services change people’s lives and transform the way industries operate, bringing far-reaching economic and social benefits. This agreement will allow us to continue providing high performance broadband services to improve digital inclusion throughout our country,” said Matias Tombolini, president at ARSAT.

“ARSAT and SES have enjoyed a fruitful and strategic relationship for more than a decade. We are delighted to support ARSAT in its mission to generate a positive social impact, connecting unserved and underserved regions in Argentina and supporting the needs of young people throughout the country,” said Omar Trujillo, Vice President of Networks Sales for Americas at SES. “We’re delighted to further strengthen the cooperation between ARSAT and SES and look forward to working together for decades to come.”
