The rollout of the satellite network has already started in 100 communities and will ultimately reach 250 rural locations in Argentina. The deployment will focus on Patagonia, Cuyo, Centro and Noroeste, connecting the sites with 2G, 3G and 4G mobile radio bases, via the Ku-band capacity of the HISPASAT 30W-5 and HISPASAT 30W-6 satellites.
