Eutelsat Communications announced its satellite deal with Bambu Wireless, a Philippine Telecommunications Solutions Provider, for capacity on the EUTELSAT 172B satellite.
Bambu Wireless will use the capacity for broadband, maritime, and government services across the Philippines’ 6,000 inhabited islands.
Bambu Wireless will leverage Ku-band capacity on EUTELSAT 172B to offer connectivity solutions for education, healthcare, agriculture and logistics across the country’s three island groups – Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao – that stretch over 1,850 kilometres.
Simeon Sander III Dela Cruz, CEO of Bambu Wireless, said: “This agreement will allow us to benefit from EUTELSAT 172B’s coverage of the Pacific to bring better Internet and VoIP services.”
Jean-Francois Fenech, CEO of Eutelsat Asia, said Bambu Wireless is the company’s first Philippines customer.
