{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Under a new, multi-year agreement, Mareste, a privately held company based in Rio de Janeiro, will offer Ku-band communications delivered by the Galaxy 28 satellite for the leisure, fishing and coastal sectors in Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay.

Mareste will package the satellite services with its Ello product, which includes antennas and hardware, to serve smaller coastal and regional vessels, where physical space for onboard equipment and budgets can be limited.

“With access to Intelsat’s satellite fleet and services, Mareste will be able to rapidly grow into a market that has traditionally been underserved,” said Márcio Esteves, Mareste’s president.

“These leisure, fishing and coastal sectors traditionally have been forced to settle for low-speed, expensive connections. With faster, more affordable broadband connectivity, Ello will solve the communications challenges for these customers, delivering a cost-effective satellite system that can be easily and rapidly deployed on smaller vessels.”{/mprestriction}
