Hispasat strengthens its capacity dedicated to bridging the digital divide in Spain and Portugal

With that of Eutelsat’s Konnect satellite

Hispasat, the Spanish satellite telecommunications operator of the Red Eléctrica Group, and the French operator Eutelsat have formed a partnership to promote initiatives to bridge the digital divide in Spain and Portugal that Hispasat has already put in place.

As part of this agreement, the Spanish operator will complement its current capacities with those of Eutelsat’s Konnect satellite over the two countries.

This way, Hispasat will operate in collaboration with Eutelsat and market high-quality broadband connectivity services at 100 Mbps to telecommunications operators and Internet Service Providers.

This agreement forms part of the lines of action that Hispasat proposed in its Strategic Plan for 2020- 25 aimed at transforming the infrastructure operator company into a satellite services and solutions company.

The company will move forward by strengthening its current business, with actions such as this partnership with Eutelsat, and promoting its growth to adapt to the latest market trends, diversifying its portfolio through new technologies, services and strategic partnerships.
