Bambu Wireless selects EUTELSAT 172B to provide connectivity services across the Philippines

Bambu Wireless, a Philippine Telecommunications Solutions Provider, has signed a multiyear contract with Eutelsat Communications for capacity on the EUTELSAT 172B satellite.

Commercialised under the brand BambuSat, the capacity will be used for broadband, maritime, and government services across the Philippines’ 6,000 inhabited islands.

Bambu Wireless will leverage Ku-band capacity on EUTELSAT 172B to offer a wide range of connectivity solutions for education, healthcare, agriculture and logistics across the country’s three island groups – Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao – that stretch over 1,850 kilometres.

Simeon Sander III Dela Cruz, CEO of Bambu Wireless, said: “This agreement will allow us to benefit from EUTELSAT 172B’s exceptional coverage of the Pacific to overcome the significant connectivity challenges associated with the Philippine geography, bringing better Internet and VOIP services and ensuring communication needs are covered across the archipelago.”

 

Jean-Francois Fenech, CEO of Eutelsat Asia, added: “We are delighted to welcome our first Philippine customer, Bambu Wireless, on board EUTELSAT 172B, one of the region’s youngest and most powerful satellites. We look forward to expanding our business opportunities in the region.”
