“In only one week, we have met important goals for ARSAT. We have started several technical tests in order to be able to start ARSAT-2's commercialisation,” said Rodrigo De Loredo, president. “We think the first commercial agreements will be inked within a few weeks.”
According to the company, telecom operators and broadcasters were interested in the satellite's capacity, which equals the current available spot-beams for North America.
The company's future is tied to proving the existence of real demand, as ARSAT has already an ongoing project for a third satellite even though the second one has not yet driven any income.
