Yahsat launches satellite in Brazil
ABU DHABI: Yahsat, the UAEbased satellite operator, oficially launched its Ka-band satellite broadband service in Brazil this month. The arrival of Yahsat in Brazil will assist in addressing the country’s shortage of reliable internet connectivity which traditionally relies on any terrestrial internet connectivity.
Yahsat’s presence in Brazil across 234 municipalities marks a signiicant milestone in the company’s international expansion strategy. By bringing previously unavailable high-performance satellite broadband service to several areas of Brazil, Yahsat is delivering on its vision to provide dependable means of global connectivity to underserved communities.
Yahsat’s expansion into Brazil comes on the back of the launch as well as commercial readiness of Yahsat’s third satellite Al Yah 3, earlier this year. The Emirati-engineered and built Al Yah 3 satellite covers over 95 per cent of Brazil’s population across more than 5,000 municipalities. Backed by Al Yah 3, Yahsat will also offer economic, high data rate backhaul links for ISPS and telecommunications operators, in addition to broadband satellite internet service.
“Yahsat’s arrival in Brazil marks a signiicant step in our company’s global commercial expansion plans, which have been in progress for the past seven years since the expansion of our satellite leet was irst proposed,” commented Masood M. Sharif Mahmood, Chief Executive Oficer at Yahsat.
