SES helps deliver fast digital services to remote areas in Albania.

Telco & Enterprise


As part of a government programme to bridge the digital disadvantages to people living in rural areas, the Albanian postal institution has brought reliable and quick-to-deploy Internet access to its rural offices.

More than half of Albania’s population lives in rural areas where there are no terrestrial broadband networks.

55% – or 300 out of 550 – of Albania’s post offices are equipped with a satellite broadband terminal.

Our local distribution partner, StarSat International, installed the bi-directional broadband solution, which allows customers to gain online access and browse the Internet, use e-commerce or VOIP telephone and make e-payments for free. At the same time, the Albanian Post uses the technology for its day-to-day operations, dramatically cutting costs by using our broadband satellite data network.
