Bnamericas Published: Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Satellite group Yahsat, from the United Arab Emirates, activated its satellite internet coverage in Pará, Brazil’s second largest state.

The signal is provided from its Al Yah 3 satellite, launched in January 2018, to cover 95% of Brazilian territory in the Ka band.

The satellite was Yahsat’s third communications satellite and the first serving Latin America. It also expanded the company’s coverage to 19 additional markets in Africa.

The company said it is gradually expanding its operations in Brazil with Al Yah 3, which now covers 16 states. Yahsat’s goal is to surpass 1,000 municipalities covered by the second half of this year.

The service is aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and residential users, with download speeds from 6-24Mbps.

Yahsat is present in more than 140 countries across the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Europe and Central and Southwest Asia regions.
