Portuguese legal practice Gómez-Acebo & Pombo says it has advised Eutelsat on the sale of “more than 1,000” customers using Eutelsat’s Konnect satellite. The agreement to sell the client base was reached in June.
The buyer is Eurona which says the purchase expands its existing connections services in Spain, and it now enters the Portuguese market.
Eurona specialises in connectivity services and access solutions in rural and remote areas. It claims leadership in connecting rural homes to broadband via satellite.
Eurona says the move reaches its objective of increasing business in the consumer segment and providing internet services via satellite, to locations without connections to other countries. It has connection customers in Morocco, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Italy, Ireland, Colombia and now Spain and Portugal.
“Eurona’s entry into Portugal is part of the company’s international expansion plan, which has more than 40,000 customers in Latin America, Africa and Europe, where the neighbouring country now joins Spain, Italy and Ireland,” states Eurona.
Eurona offers a basic 30 Mb of satellite connectivity from €28 per month (VAT included).
