English term or phrase: that spans
XXX's mission is to provide satellite mobile telecommunications services to a region inhabited by 4 million people that spans the XXX subcontinent...etc. etc

Could this be : "S'etandant sous le Sous-Continent XXX"? I do not like it very much. Any other options?
Thanks in advance
