Hughes and Arsat SG1 landing may give a new beginning for residential satellite broadband

The operator will allocate 15 Gbps of capacity in the Ka band of the Jupiter 3 satellite in 2022, while the state company will contribute 80 Gbps of the Arsat SG1 a year later. The barrier to LEO systems is the high price of the terminals

Hughes' entry into the Argentine residential satellite broadband market, announced at the Convergencialatina Satellite Map Day event at the end of last June, could repower this segment as of 2022.
