Luxembourg-based satellite broadband operator, SES Astra, has announced five contracts which will extend its services into additional territories in Europe and North Africa.

The new contracts allow for the provision of Astra’s one-way satellite-based high speed internet services at Europe's orbital position of 19.2 degrees East.

They include a long-term deal with Servisys, a French provider of networks and software solutions for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and replicated branch offices, for services to Algeria.

The other territories covered by Astra’s new service provider partnerships are Ireland, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

“We are excited to extend the Astra broadband services to new territories,” says Alexander Oudendijk, senior vice president, sales and marketing, SES Astra.

“The ubiquity of satellite services provides for a readily available, yet state of the art ‘gap-filler’ to bridge the digital divide, not least in regions neglected by modern terrestrial infrastructures,” he adds.
