SOFIA (Bulgaria), November 19 (SeeNews) – The U.S.-based provider of broadband satellite networks and services Hughes Network Systems said on Monday it has signed a contract with Bulgarian telecoms company Max Telecom to use its point-to-multipoint broadband wireless system for an undisclosed sum.
“It's an ideal solution for providing a wide range of broadband applications including high-speed Internet access, WiMAX base station backhaul and leased line connectivity,” Tom Hsu, senior vice president and general manager, Terrestrial Microwave Division at Hughes, said in a statement.
Max Telecom is currently building a WiMax network, which it has said will cover 90% of Bulagria’s populatioin of 7.7 million people by the end of 2009. Many telecom operators see the use of the WiMax technology as a way to overcome the last-mile hurdle set by the dominant fixed-line operator in Bulgaria, the BTC. The "last mile" is a telecoms jargon for the telephone cable linking the switching station to the customer at home.
Hughes (www.hughes.com) provides broadband satellite networks and services for large enterprises, governments, small businesses, and consumers. To date, the company has shipped more than 1.2 million systems to customers in over 100 countries.
