Red Intercable contracts capacity on Arsat II satellite

Tuesday 14 June 2016 | 10:09 CET | News
Red Intercable and state-owned company Arsat signed an agreement that will allow around 270 small and medium-sized cable operators serving 600 locations throughout Argentina to use 14 percent of the transmission capacity of the Arsat II satellite. Together with the 52 MHz allocated to America Movil, the 144 MHz assigned to Red Intercable means that the occupancy rate of Arsat's second satellite now reaches around 30 percent. Arsat president Rodrigo de Loredo announced that, after Canada, the company expects to obtain the landing rights in the US in the coming days.
