Uz-Sat partners Hughes for satellite broadband solutions in rural, remote areas

14 Mar 2023

Uz-Sat, a joint venture between Uzbektelecom, Satellin Group and private Uzbek enterprises, has chosen the Hughes Jupiter System ground platform for satellite broadband solutions to help close the digital divide in Uzbekistan. Uz-Sat will employ Jupiter gateways and terminals to bring broadband connectivity via geostationary satellites to remote and rural parts of the country.

Uz-Sat CEO Bakhrom Azimov stated: ‘This is a pivotal moment as we initiate satellite broadband service and bring internet access to communities throughout Uzbekistan beyond the reach of cable and fibre.’ Ramesh Ramaswamy, general manager at the International Division of Hughes Network Systems’ parent company EchoStar, declared: ‘We look forward to working together with Uz-Sat to enable enterprise networks, connect communities and help mobile operators extend their networks.’
