Azercosmos and the global satellite operator Intelsat have signed a commercial agreement on the joint implementation of long-term projects in the West African region. According to the agreement, Intelsat will provide Cellular Backhaul (CBH) services to its customers in the West African region, which has 17 countries and a population of more than 430 million, by using the resources of the Azerspace-2 satellite.
