DISH teams with Gilat for new broadband service

21 Dec 2018

Mexican pay-TV operator DISH has teamed up with Israel’s Gilat Satellite Networks to launch what it describes as ‘a new high-quality satellite internet access service, to benefit the unserved and underserved people of Mexico’. The service, which will use the ‘ON’ brand, will be targeted at residential and SME customers. DISH has selected Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c multi-service platform, which operates over Ka-band capacity from Hispasat’s recently launched Amazonas-5 satellite.
