Global satellite connectivity provider, Gilat Satellite Networks announced that it has received a new award by Peru’s telecoms investment fund, Fitel for a regional telecommunications infrastructure project worth $108 million. The project in the region of Cusco which is located in the south of Peru, represents the complementary phase of the Peruvian National Fiber Backbone project, aimed to connect rural villages to broadband services.

This new project adds to other projects previously awarded to Gilat by Fitel in the regions of Huancavelica, Ayacucho and Apurimac, which are currently underway.

Dov Baharav, Chairman and interim CEO of Gilat
The fact that Gilat was awarded an additional regional project by Fitel for $108 million testifies to the confidence placed in our ability to deploy massive telecommunications projects under challenging conditions. 

Jose Gallardo Ku , Minister of Transport and Communications
We have taken an additional step for the development of Peru. Today we start covering new villages with high speed broadband. I'm pleased because strategic alliances between public and private sectors are strengthening with those projects.
