Hey,
Did you get any answers? I am in Guatemala and the dealers here are way too expensive!
Any suggestions?

There are two LinkStar networks working out of Rio and Buenos Aires, both by Telespazio, but they serve primarily big businesses in Brazil and Argentina. I'm looking for service providers able to offer service to home and small business users throughout South America.  If you know other service providers (even if very high cost) it would be at least useful to know who they are.  High costs are essential initially if the networks are to be financialy viable as it costs a great deal to set up, to rent the satellite bandwidth and to pay the hub staff - and you start from no customers at all....

I have just added a LinkStar coverage for the whole of South America (see Bentley Walker on page http://www.satsig.net/ivsat.htm) but it does not extend far enough north to cover Guatemala. 
I am still looking for a good beam covering the Carribbean and central America, so please, if you know any such service provider say here.  Thanks.

My company -- Surinam Information & Communication Network (SICON) -- provides broadband satellite internet services to the guyanas and the dutch
caribean. The service is an asymmetric 256 down/ 76.8 up with a burst of up to 512 down for home and business.  Situated in Suriname South America, SICON provides consultancy and technical services in the aforementioned region.   Cheers, Alwin. [message submitted by email, Forum Admin]

Added 23 March 2006:  I have been unable to find any information about SICON.    The oroginal email provided by Alwin was d_j_d@hotmail.com   I am not hopeful that the organisation still exists.


I suggest you go to :

and try asking the several known companies mentioned there.

We are already using KU2 band for Latin America if interested in activating Direcway dishes from Mexico to Chile.  It is NOT Direcway service, but we use Direcway equipment.  Bandwidth costs are higher but it does work in ALL Latin América (Except Brazil, check Satmex 5, KU2 coverage).  Let me know if interested at sales@inetconsa.com

I have been unable to find any information about SICON.   All documents indexed in Google that looked hopeful now appear to have been deleted.  The
email provided by Alwin was d_j_d@hotmail.com

Si Ud esta en Ecuador o Colombia y desea tener internet satelital escoja las opciones de operadores registrados en la CONATEL como Quiksat hay planes desde $210 mensual con equipos viasat surfbeam. Otra empresa muy buena es Axxesat de colombia http://www.axesat.com que activa equipos gilat skystar 360 y skyedge ip -es un alternativa al pesimo servicio que da  Gilat como operador. Otro operador recomendable es COMSAT latinoamerica da servicio empresarial para terminales LINKSTAR e IDIRECT en Banda Ku satelite Satmex5. Y bueno si desea instalar un servicio para ISP para 100 o + pcs un operador bueno es NEW SKIES DO BRASIL con servicio en banda C. _Inclusive tienes la posiblidad de usar 2 satelites con una misma antena uno en banda Ku y el otro en Banda C. TENGA CUIDADO CON LAS CIAS VIRTUALES QUE ACTIVAN TRATE CON REPRESENTANTES DIRECTOS EN SU PAIS O EL MISMO TELEPUERTO. Tenga cuidado con empresas no registradas y virtuales y que no le dan factura ni soporte local. hay varias como Ecuasat.net.ec, Conexiaglobal,.com, etc etc. 1000 +
