Brazilian court approves Viasat, TELEBRÁS internet connectivity deal

The Brazilian Federal Court of Accounts granted final approval to an internet connectivity contract between Viasat Inc. and Telecomunicações Brasileiras SA - TELEBRÁS.

The approval came after the communications companies complied with the court's requests to modify the contract in order to fully commercialize the offering of broadband services through TELEBRÁS' SGDC Ka-band satellite, according to a May 22 statement.

The court's decision allows Viasat and TELEBRÁS to continue rolling out high-speed internet to unserved and underserved communities, health clinics, schools and hospitals in Brazil. The companies have already installed more than 4,500 broadband access sites.

Viasat has a separate tie-up with satellite service provider Ruralweb to distribute high-speed satellite internet services across Brazil.

TELEBRÁS is a Brazilian state-controlled public telecommunications company.
