Millicom’s satellite service in Colombia intends to end the year operating in 300 rural areas throughout the country.

In October, Millicom’s subsidiary extended the commercial operation across Colombia, although no subscriber figures have been released.

The company has now stated its intention of ending the year with a consolidated operation in 300 towns throughout the country, specifically targeting rural communities with no access to cable TV. To this end, Millicom has invested 1.7 million in the first stage of deployment.

“Satellite TV enables us to reach every corner of the country, without being limited by a network or the topography,” said Santiago Londoño, commercial VP, Tigo Une. “Thus, we can bring the service to the home, no matter where. Tigo Star has no limits.”

Currently, the satellite pay-TV service offers two different price plans, the Basic with 115 channels (four in HD) and the Advanced with 145 networks and 12 HD signals. In addition, the platform’s set-top box includes DVR features.
