US-based satellite provider Hughes Network Systems has launched its HughesNet high-speed satellite broadband service in Chile, covering more than 98% of homes, including those in areas that are either unserved or underserved by fixed and fixed-wireless providers. The launch follows on the heels of launches in Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru, the operator stated, adding that it currently serves over 1.3 million consumer and business customers throughout the Americas. Its service plans in Chile feature data transfer rates of up to 50Mbps/5Mbps (download/upload).

‘With the commencement of HughesNet in Chile, we continue our strategy to expand internet access across the Americas with attractive pricing plans and fast, reliable service,’ Hughes senior VP International Vinod Shukla was quoted as saying, adding: ‘Now, more Chileans can do more online, including web browsing, email, shopping, social media and downloading music and video.’
