[Via Satellite 06-25-2015] Poste Mobile, the mobile operator of Poste Italiane Group, has selected Eutelsat Communications to provide broadband services to 300 post office locations through its Ka-Sat satellite. The first 120 locations are expected to have satellite connectivity by the end of 2015 with the additional 180 post offices to follow in 2016. Post offices will have download speeds of up to 22 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 6 Mbps, improving postal, insurance and banking services to the public as well as back-office operations.
The agreement will enable Poste Italiane offices located beyond terrestrial broadband to provide the public with the same level of service as branches in major population centers. Staff will also gain improved office IT and telecommunications services that will benefit their customers. Furthermore, Poste Italiane has successfully tested additional public and back-office services through Eutelsat that can be rolled-out in the future. These include public Wi-Fi access in post offices, security surveillance options and videoconferencing facilities.
