SES to Deploy Free Broadband Hotspots Across Mexico

Fully Managed Internet Solution

SES will deliver the connectivity as a fully managed solution to the CFE TEIT via the SES-17 satellite. This solution enables the federal agency to optimize bandwidth and facilitate dynamic demand needs while reducing the cost and complexity of delivering satellite connectivity. This is the second deployment of SES's capacity under the internet para todos initiative, following on from over 1,000 free hotspots enabled via the SES-15 satellite last year, according to a statement by the company.

Strategically Located Wi-Fi Hotspots

These strategically installed Wi-Fi hotspots provide reliable Internet access to the entire population, with a particular focus on remote regions and underserved communities. These hotspots can be found in public squares, community spaces, schools, and hospitals.

Government Wants to Increase Connectivity

For example, in 2021, the National Statistics and Geography Institute of Mexico (INEGI) reported that only 66.4% of households in the country had broadband access, and rural areas like Chiapas had even lower rates, with only 32.6% of the population having internet access.

As of December 2022, CFE TEIT has installed 55,360 free internet access points for Mexican citizens. The Federal Government aims to increase this number to 140,000 by January 2023.
