MTN agrees South American ferry deal

MTN Satellite Communications (MTN) has announced the signing of a new VSAT contract with Buquebus, the largest ferry operator in South America.

MTN will provide Buquebus with VSAT satellite communications services, as well as internet and Wi-Fi connectivity, throughout its fleet.

Buquebus is a tourism transportation company in Uruguay, connecting more than 2 million passengers between Argentina and Uruguay every year.

After completing a trial period, Buquebus selected MTN to provide VSAT services to its fleet travelling between Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Colonia.

“We were pleased with MTN’s service reliability and technical support during our trial phase,” said Jorge Petraglia, director of onboard services at Buquebus.

“We look forward to delivering our passengers the innovative connectivity options that MTN has planned for our vessels.”
