Andesa to launch its first satellite in 2023 with Astranis

The company has operations in Argentina, Chile, Peru and Ecuador, with three teleports installed in Buenos Aires, Santiago and Lima. Its first own satellite, Andesat 1, will serve to provide coverage in Peru as part of the program “Te Conectamos Perú”, which serves remote rural areas.

Andesat is already working on the deployment of a cellular network for rural areas in Peru, under the figure of Rural Mobile Infrastructure Operator (RMIO) where they installed 100 cell sites that use spectrum from mobile operators. These first sites are operated by Telefónica, and as Pablo Rasore, CEO of Andesat, told Convergencialatina, they also hope to close contracts with Claro, Entel and Bitel. The expectation is to reach 154 sites in an initial phase (including the 100 already in operation): "by the time the satellite is launched we expect to have about 500 or 600 sites (each site is a town) and with the satellite we will reach more 1,000, "said the executive.
