Bolivia's Tupac Katari satellite has begun offering telecommunications services in Colombia as part of plans to serve other international markets, reports Prensa Latina, citing Bolivian space agency (ABE) director Ivan Zambrana. The USD 302 million satellite was launched in December 2013 and has helped operators connect to around 2 million residents in rural areas throughout the country. Zambrana said the aim was to consolidate the presence of Tupac Katari in South America over the coming months.
