SES Astra signs reseller agreement with Towercom

Expands the marketing and sales of ASTRA2Connect in Central and Eastern Europe

By CBR Staff Writer

SES Astra, a direct-to-home satellite system in Europe, has signed a further reseller agreement for its two-way satellite broadband service ASTRA2Connect with the TV and telecommunications operator Towercom in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

With this agreement, SES Astra will expand the marketing and sales of ASTRA2Connect in Central and Eastern Europe.

According to SES Astra, ASTRA2Connect is an ideal broadband solution for households in regions without or with insufficient terrestrial broadband infrastructure. The technology offers an always-on, two-way broadband internet access, including internet telephony, for flat service fees.

The customer premises equipment, a modem and a satellite dish, is delivered with a tool for easy self-installation. ASTRA2Connect is marketed via wholesalers and internet service providers to the residential market.

Norbert Willems, managing director of Astra broadband services, said: Our distribution agreement with Towercom is a further step for the roll-out of ASTRA2Connect in Central and Eastern Europe. We are very proud that with ASTRA2Connect we can now offer a fast and cost-efficient solution to those Czech and Slovakian households without access to terrestrial high-speed internet.
