Company Detail


Empresa Argentina de Soluciones Satelitales (ArSat) is an Argentine state-run satellite firm which holds exclusive rights to operate and commercialize geostationary orbital position 81W in ku band (North and South America) and C band (hemispheric coverage). ArSat acts as a reseller of satellite capacity to third parties, and is also in charge of the development of satellite and terrestrial infrastructure for the state's digital TV system. Its teleport facilities, located in Benavidez, serve seven satellites which cover the entire southern Latin American area, delivering satellite bandwidth for voice, data, audio and video services. Founded in 2006 and based in Buenos Aires, ArSat leads Argentina's national connectivity plan. The firm launched in 2014 its first geo-stationary satellite, ArSat-1, aiming to strengthen the country's Internet coverage and DTT network, and improve audio-visual content distribution from Argentina to the rest of Latin America and the US. In 2015, the state-run telecommunications company launched the ArSat-2 satellite, with a total investment of US$250mn.
