HISPASAT, GlobalSat collaborate on rural Mexican connectivity project

21 Apr 2022

Spanish telecoms satellite operator HISPASAT (part of the Red Electrica Group) has collaborated with Mexican ISP GlobalSat on the rollout of satellite connectivity hotspots in 500 remote towns in Mexico, including Durango, San Luis Potosi, Guerrero, Coahuila, Tamaulipas, Zacatecas and Sinaloa. Via the initiative – which is being promoted by the government through the CFE Telecomunicaciones e Internet para Todos (Telecommunication and Internet for Everyone) scheme – the residents of these towns will be able to enjoy free satellite connectivity on their devices through an open Wi-Fi hotspot located in public areas in these communities.
