In May, Hughes announced the formation of Hughes Network Systems Australia Pty. Ltd., also known as Hughes Australia, demonstrating the company’s commitment to serve this strategic and rapidly growing market, particularly in the area of Ka-band satellite technology and services.
“We congratulate the Australian government on its mission to bridge the digital divide across this vast and beautiful country,” said Pradman Kaul, CEO of Hughes. “Satellite is the ideal technology to bring high-speed Internet services to homes and offices affordably, even in the least populated areas, and establishing this office means we can engage more actively in helping fulfill that mission.”
Hughes sees this expansion as an important next step in its global services strategy, positioning the company to better serve this growing region and to expand on its successful 20-year-plus record of supplying satellite broadband technology to major operators in Australia.
