The agreement enables Speedcast to provide network services to mobile network operators (MNOs) and enterprise customers in areas of Peru where high performance internet is in high demand and short supply, enabling a host of latency-sensitive and bandwidth-hungry applications.

Speedcast is able to supply this 24/7/365 day support through its network of more than 250 field engineers.
“Our unique low-latency, high throughput connectivity will help Speedcast achieve its goal of providing fibre-like connectivity and a premium experience to customers,” said Omar Trujillo, Vice President of Sales for Latin America at SES Networks. “We are proud of our strong relationship with Speedcast, and pleased to help support the continued growth of its capabilities and infrastructure in the region.”
“Speedcast is happy to deliver a new level of performance for enterprises in Peru,” said Pierre-Jean Beylier, CEO at SpeedCast. “The added support from SES Networks’ services will allow us to provide enterprises with the critical high-demand communications capabilities necessary to operate with speed and efficiency in today’s technology-driven market. Speedcast is building the fibre, the radio links, and WiFi to extend the signal to the end users. It was a pleasure to work with SES Networks on this project as it was a real team effort.”
