Following merger announcement between Echostar and Dish, Hughes consolidates with new capacity in the region

Hugo Frega, General Manager for the Caribbean and Latin America of Hughes, shared the company's progress in the region after the launch of the Jupiter 3 satellite. The manager also highlighted the synergies with the Argentine operator Arsat and the opportunities that the company sees in that country as a result of the 5G tender and the recent merger between Echostar - the group to which Hughes belongs - and Dish, a process that will give rise to a global terrestrial and satellite wireless connectivity giant. In this context, Hughes is positioned as one of the main references in the sector in the region, both for its leadership in the manufacturing and distribution of terminals and gateways, and for its fleet of satellites and high-density payloads with coverage over the American continent.
