Gilat Satellite Networks, a specialist in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, has announced that Globe Telecom, a telecom company in the Philippines, has chosen Gilat for a three-year multi-million US dollar contract, to enable WiFi service over satellite to schools and hospitals, in addition to cellular backhaul throughout the Philippines.
