Global satellite services provider Hughes has announced a contract to supply the latest generation of its Jupiter system to Argentina's state-owned communications operator Arsat for the provision of high-speed satellite internet connectivity to schools and underserved rural areas of the country. The equipment will include gateways and VSATs (Very Small Aperture Terminals) that will operate over the Arsat 1 and 2 satellites. In the initial phase, approximately 1,000 terminals will connect schools to the internet toward an eventual goal of 2,000 sites, said Hughes.
