Delivers Hundreds of Mbps of Connectivity into Peru to Drive Economic GrowthSpeedcast International Limited (
Speedcast will deliver network services to cellular operators and enterprise customers in areas of Peru where high performance internet is badly needed, enabling a host of latency-sensitive and bandwidth-hungry applications, as well as opening the door to new economic development. Speedcast will provide fiber-like connectivity and a high customer experience which will be supported by Speedcast's 24x7x365 global customer service centers, and local field engineering resources in the region to provide fast, reliable support at all times.
The Iquitos project is significant as it brings connectivity to the region while protecting the environment and natural resources. Other communication technologies, such as fiber, would have been more expensive to implement, taken more time and would have had a negative impact on the local rainforest.
"Speedcast is happy to deliver a new level of performance for enterprises in Peru" said Jaime Dickinson, Vice President, Speedcast Americas. "Speedcast is building the fiber, the radio links, and WiFi to extend the signal to the end users. We are especially proud of the fact that we are part of the solution to preserve natural resources in the Amazon region, while at the same time providing high speed service that promotes new economic growth in Peru. The project represents material growth for Speedcast's Enterprise & Emerging Markets business and we see opportunities to replicate this model in other parts of Latin America."
