Viasat  and Ubix, a wholesale satellite internet and telecommunications company, are collaborating  with the Mexican government to connect government buildings, federal clinics and schools across Mexico, under the “Internet para Todos” program.

Ubix and Viasat have been working together since December 2018, leveraging satellite internet bandwidth from Viasat’s ViaSat-2 satellite to satellite internet service to many enterprises in Mexico. The satellite-enabled services operate in the 28 Gigahertz (GHz) and 18 GHz portions of the Ka-band. The two companies are now leveraging the ViaSat-2 satellite to connect schools, healthcare sites, and government institutions under the “Internet para Todos” initiative.

“Through the current ‘Internet para Todos’ site deployments, Viasat has demonstrated its reliability, flexibility and high-speed satellite internet capabilities,” said Mauricio Ávila González, director of Red Telecommunications and Mexsat. “Due to its proven performance on ViaSat-2, we are satisfied with the services provided by Ubix and Viasat and we are looking forward to increasing our success across the program.”
