Spanish satellite operator Hispasat has secured new orbital rights at the 61° West position through its Hispamar Satellites Brazilian subsidiary.
Hispamar has secured rights to Ku-band frequencies at 61° West for the next 15 years. The move followed an auction whereby Hispamar placed the winning bid of US$29.5 million for frequency rights from Brazilian National Telecommunications Agency Anatel.
According to Hispasat, 55.6% of its group profits were made in the Americas last year, with the Latin American satellite market predicted to grow at a rate of 5.7% per annum for the next five years.
