MEO Satellites Enhancing Connectivity

SES’s MEO satellites, positioned at 8,000 km above the Earth’s surface, will support the government’s efforts towards digital inclusion by bringing connectivity to even the most remote regions in Colombia, as announced by both companies on Monday.

Inred stated, “With SES as our long-term partner, operating satellites in geostationary and MEO orbits and understanding our connectivity requirements, we are confident that SES will provide the most suitable satellite network to contribute to a brighter social and economic future for the people of Colombia.”

SES mentioned, “We have previously assisted INRED in connecting nearly one million individuals at 1,300 locations in Colombia with free Wi-Fi access. Today, we are expanding our collaboration as INRED utilizes our MEO satellites to connect the residents of Leticia city with low-latency, high-throughput connectivity, enabling improved access to educational and governmental services.”
