State-owned Cuban telco Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba (ETECSA) has signed a deal with satellite services provider SES Networks.

Executive President of ETECSA, Mayra Arevich Marin said: ‘By working with SES Networks we are ensuring that our customers across the main island will have a new way to access high-performing internet at all times through this innovative satellite system. Our collaboration with SES Networks highlights ETECSA’s mission of providing telecommunications services that meet the current and future needs of Cuban citizens and our customers, as well as contributing to the country’s socio-economic growth.’
