Madrid, Spain— AUGUSTA, Spain — AUG. 31, 2019— A large number of Ceballs, the first stage of the Euskaltel group of telecommunications satellites, will arrive in orbit today, marking the beginning of the Cebals first step towards providing free Wi-Fi service to all residents of Spain, Spain’s Federal Communications Commission (ACSP) said in a statement.
The Cebels satellites will provide the first access to the public Wi-fi network of Spain’s public telecommunications network, the Spanish Federal Communications Authority (EBU) said on its website.
The satellites will be placed in the geostationary transfer orbit (GTO) on August 30 and 31.
The satellite is to be deployed on a Falcon 9 rocket and the EBU said it would be deployed to the Canary Islands and the Canary islands of the Canary in Spain.
Spain’s EBU is the agency responsible for establishing the network of free public WiFi networks.
The new satellite will be deployed for the duration of the mission, which will last until December 31, 2020, the statement said.
In July 2018, the CEPI, a group of industry representatives, agreed to provide free Wifi to residents of the country who are in need of the service.
The EBU, the European Commission and other countries have launched initiatives to promote the development of free Wi–Fi in Spain and other European Union countries.
The first phase of the satellite’s service is expected to begin in August 2020.
The European Union has launched several other initiatives aimed at promoting free Wi‐Fi in Europe.
The next phase will be launched on September 2, 2020.
According to the Spanish government, the new satellite was built by a consortium of Spanish engineering companies and companies based in the United States.
The project is the result of an ambitious project launched by the Spanish Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, which is the Spanish Government’s public service agency.
The launch of the satellites comes as Spain prepares to host the 2022 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
