Algérie Telecom Satellite Selects Hughes JUPITER System to Power Internet Service
New service to connect the unconnected in Algeria with high-speed Internet access
Algérie Telecom Satellite (ATS), the leading public satellite telecommunications provider in Algeria, selected the Hughes JUPITERTM System to power its satellite broadband service for home users and small-to-medium enterprise customers, which it is launching with a gateway and thousands of user terminals. The mission of ATS is to develop and promote satellite telecommunications throughout Algeria, the tenth largest country in the world and the largest in Africa.
“To connect people throughout Algeria with satellite broadband service, we need a satellite platform that can deliver high performance and efficiency, with the right economics,” said Yassine Sellahi, chief executive officer, ATS. “We chose the Hughes JUPITER System for these reasons and for its scalability as we look to grow our satellite Internet business and extend connectivity everywhere.”
“Our strategy globally is to help connect the unconnected by delivering service directly where we operate the business, and to work with selected partners, like ATS, in places where we do not,” said Ramesh Ramaswamy, senior vice president and general manager, International Division, Hughes. “We appreciate the opportunity to help ATS launch service throughout Algeria and to bring the benefits of high-speed Internet access to the many that are unserved or underserved by terrestrial providers.”
