Gilat Satellite Networks, one of the leaders in satellite networking technology, solutions, and services, has announced that Internet para Todos (IPT) in Peru is expanding its contract with the company, for 4G cellular backhaul services over the Internet.
IPT is a global collaboration between Telefónica, Meta (formerly Facebook), IDB Invest, and CAF. The initiative is bridging the digital divide in Latin America and providing internet connectivity to remote regions of Peru.
Gilat provides 4G cellular backhaul services over the internet that are being deployed at more than 100 new sites to provide coverage to rural zones through Gilat’s access network. The new multi-year contract addresses 4G connectivity to smaller villages and is expected to further grow over time.

“It’s an honor to expand this important, continuing work with IPT, helping them to overcome technical and economic barriers to bridge the digital divide and increase connectivity in rural areas," said Arieh Rohrstock, Corporate SVP and General Manager, Gilat Peru.
