Demand for satellite broadband like it

At a time of increased demand and establishment of new models to offer, the fixed broadband market via satellite has exceeded expectations of competitors – don't rule out further investments in the segment. According to the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel), contracts of fixed broadband via satellite more than doubled in a year, rising from 81800 hits in September 2017 to 173,300 in the ninth month of this year. Seizing the moment, the operator Yahsat began this month to supply (based on Ka band) service in 234 cities spread over São Paulo, Goiás, Minas Gerais and Rio Grande do Norte. The expectation is to reach a thousand municipalities in 21 States until March 2019, as the Director of Yahsat in Brazil, Marcio James. " We are very confident and we hit our goals or anticipate them, "said company executive based in the United Arab Emirates. According to James, the total contribution to enable operation in Brazil has reached $ $200 million and spent for launching satellite in January Al Yah 3-able to cover 95% of the population. " It's a delicate and that investment demand time. The business plan [for entry into Brazil] started in Abu Dhabi in 2010 ", said the regional director of Yahsat. In the residential market and of small and medium-sized enterprises, the offer will be made possible with support of more than 130 retail partners; by March, the expectation is to reach 400. Already the market "wholesale" and the segment of large companies was explored since July. Brazilian subsidiary of Spanish operator Hispasat, Hispamar also announced the entry into residential fixed broadband market, but by offering "unbranded" connectivity to third parties. In this way, the product can be marshaled by potential partners as regional providers of broadband (or ISPs). "We don't come straight to the B2C because we don't want to go down the value chain," explained the Director of Hispamar's business in South America, Sérgio Chaves. The DCI, the Executive said that the interests of small companies for the supply of satellite operator is natural, since they are the ISPs responsible "for breaking barriers and bring broadband across the country." " Depending on demand, we invest more in Brazil ", keys, which qualified as" reasonable "the contributions have enabled the new offer. "It's a lot of money up front to have return," he admitted. In the case of the company, two satellites – Amazon and Amazon 3 5 – allow the coverage in more than 80% of the national territory; the second artifact was launched last year with much of the Ka-band capacity (considered ideal for residential broadband via satellite) intended for the national market. At the moment, the Hispamar still looking for partners able to make an offer of access points wi-fi with prepaid access. "The myth of broadband [satellite fixed] only serve to places where they don't have any kind of coverage is being Demystified" Keys continued. According to him, in addition to the places where there is no offer of service, where the internet has arrived – but without satisfactory speeds – have registered a good demand. "Among current providers, São Paulo is the fastest-growing State," he noted. Among the competitors in the square, especially the HughesNet. Offering fixed broadband focused on "corners" of Brazil since 2016, the residential unit of the American company Hughes claims have already exceeded the mark of 100,000 fixed accesses in the country. Throughout the year, the company's coverage in the country reached 5000 Brazilian municipalities. Another competitor of weight – but for now surrounded by uncertainties-is the Telebras, whose defense and geostationary satellite communications (SGDC-1) has great ability in Ka band. After being barred in court, an exploration contract signed by the State-owned with Viasat was released recently by the American Tribunal de Contas da União (TCU); still, the business model for the residential segment (as well as the very future of public company) follow as unknowns facing the market, stated the sources heard by DCI.
