New Satellite Internet Service In Poland
A new satellite Internet service is to be available in Poland. SES Astra signed a deal with Go!nternet to launch a new one-way satellite Internet service across Poland. The satellite downlink will be provided via ASTRA 19.2 degrees East and the return channel will be ensured by GPRS technology provided by PTK Centertel. The combination of GPRS and satellite make this an interesting product offering.
Bertrand Jasinski, president of Go!nternet commented, “We are introducing a product that is the first of this kind on the Polish market. We want to reach thousands of people who so far could not find a solution to enjoy broadband Internet. Thanks to the bundled satellite and mobile telephony technologies, we can finally offer a complete product and only one invoice combining two services.”
The service should launch later this month. Customers in the Mazovia region of Poland will be able to access the service first, although Go!nternet hopes to make the service available to all Polish consumers in the future.
