EchoStar-owned Hughes Network Systems is supplying Kazakhstan with satellite equipment to help connect more than 200 villages throughout the country, and help bridge the ‘digital divide’.

Kazakhstan’s Republican Center of Space Communication (RCSC), via the Ministry of Digital Development, is placing the order which calls for Hughes Jupiter System ground platforms. The order is being fulfilled by Kazakh importer TIMIR LLP.

“The Hughes Jupiter System is trusted around the world to connect more than 25 million people across more than 50,000 hotspots,” said Vaibhav Magow, VP/International Division at Hughes. “We value the opportunity to support RCSC in its efforts to connect the unconnected across Kazakhstan with reliable satellite broadband.”

Hughes Network Systems provides broadband equipment and managed services for millions of consumers, businesses, governments, airlines, and communities worldwide. The Hughes flagship internet service, Hughesnet, connects millions of people across the Americas, and the Hughes Jupiter System powers internet access for tens of millions more worldwide.
