Intelsat and Andesat launch Peru rural broadband cooperative project

Wednesday 13 May 2020 | 11:43 CET | News
Intelsat has joined forces with regional consortium Andesat to launch a satellite-based mobile broadband (3G) service for remote communities across Peru. The project is called "TeConectamosPeru" and is designed to bring 3G access to 154 rural Peruvian communities in 2020, rising to over 400 remote sites over the next 18 months. Under the cooperative model pioneered by Andesat and Intelsat, the companies will share infrastructure and network-build expenses as well as revenues, with Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) only having to pay for the traffic that their end-users consume.
