Hispasat, Quantis provide free Wi-Fi to Galicia's As Neves following wildfires

Monday 13 November 2017 | 09:55 CET | News
Spanish satellite operator Hispasat has joined forces with Quantis, the satellite subsidiary of the Eurona Group, and equipment distributor Nexmachina to install four satellite-based open Wi-Fi points in the town of As Neves following the spate of wildfires in the northern Spanish region of Galicia. The four hot spots will allow around 300 people to connect simultaneously at speeds of 25 Mbps while communications services are restored, said the partners. The town's communications infrastructure was severely affected by the forest fires that swept through Galicia in October.
