Intelsat has launched new services in Brazil, one of Latin America’s biggest markets, as it targets more revenues from this market. It announced Sept. 27 that new services in Brazil combine local support, new teleport facilities, and broader satellite coverage to deliver connectivity services to more users across the region.

Our expansion in Brazil is part of our strategy to empower the broader Latin America region with unparalleled connectivity, targeting underserved areas and remote regions like the Amazon, fostering digital inclusivity,” Ricardo La Guardia, RVP of Latin American Sales at Intelsat said in a statement
