The satellite internet service expands MetTel’s growing portfolio of connectivity offerings and will initially be available in the contiguous U.S., with the potential to expand into Puerto Rico, Mexico and other international markets.

According to Pew Research Center, nearly a quarter of rural Americans indicate not having high-speed connectivity is a major issue in their local community. This issue also affects businesses in underserved suburban and urban areas that depend on reliable, always-on connectivity and real-time communications for critical business services.

The Company is also one of the first Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute satellite providers able to support direct cloud connections for enterprise customers.
