Tuesday 23 October 2018 | 11:23 CET | News
Hughes Network Systems (Hughes), an EchoStar company, is set to launch its HughesNet satellite-based broadband service in Peru, reports Semana Economica, citing country head and local sales director Hugo Paredes. The company will initially cover 15 Peruvian regions via three distributors, with Paredes pledging a further investment of USD 100 million over the next five years to increase HughesNet's local coverage. "We already have 20 companies interested," he said, adding that "the corporate sector will account for 30 percent of billing while the other 70 percent will be residential."
