Correct Answer : Option (C) - Hughes Communications India Ltd.

India’s first High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) broadband service was launched on Monday(12th Sep 2022) with support from the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). Hughes Communications India Private Limited (HCI), a leading provider of broadband satellite and managed network services, announced the commercial launch of the HTS service at an event held in Le Meridien Hotel, New Delhi.

S Somanath, Chairman of the ISRO, Partho Banerjee, President and Managing Director of HCI, and Shivaji Chaterjee, Executive Vice President, HCI, were present at the event. 
HCI’s HTS broadband service will combine Ku-band capacity from ISRO's GSAT-11 and LSAT-29 satellites with Hughes JUPITER Platform ground technology.

Ku-band is a microwave frequency band used for satellite communication and broadcasting, and uses frequencies of about 12 gigahertz for terrestrial reception, and 14 gigahertz for transmission. By combining Ku-band capacity from ISRO’s satellite with Hughes technology, high-speed broadband can be delivered across India, including the most remote areas. These regions are beyond the reach of terrestrial networks..
