Located in the southern half of South America, Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world. It shares the famous Southern Cone with Chile and is also bordered by Paraguay, Bolivia, Uruguay and the Atlantic. The country has a population of 44.27 million people. Argentina has a strong economy which is highly diversified and the second largest in South America. As a country, it is rich in natural resources but manufacturing and agriculture form key parts of the economy. Key sectors include food processing, beverages, tobacco, auto parts and motor vehicles, chemicals and pharmaceutical, wine production and metallurgy. Tourism is also an important sector and Argentina attracts millions of tourists every year.
The Argentinian population is as engaged with digital technology as anywhere else on the planet. There is a great deal of demand for faster, voice, video and data and the popularity of streaming and for social media is very high. The Argentinian government has also made the connection between broadband access and a thriving socio economic society. In 2010, it initiated a National Broadband Plan with ARSAT, its state-owned satellite company, to deliver broadband services and also digital TV services to rural regions of Argentina that were still on the wrong side of the Digital Divide. There were around 1,200 sites that the government wanted to connect. The programme has been highly effective as today, 93.1% penetration has been achieved.
VSAT Solutions for Argentina
However, there are still areas that must be reached by broadband. Argentina has proved just how successful and cost-effective satellite can be in deploying broadband services across such a large country. BusinessCom Networks has many years of expertise in the delivery of affordable and reliable satellite-based broadband services for rural areas that are difficult to reach with terrestrial connectivity. BusinessCom will help to design a tailored VSAT-based network that can enable the delivery of the full range of broadband services very rapidly.
In addition to fixed broadband services, mobile broadband is also on a growth path in Argentina with many nearly 58% of people accessing the Internet on mobile devices in the country (according to Statista). The country is currently looking forward to 5G rollout, but presently, the market is not terribly competitive and mobile process can be high as a result. BusinessCom also has a great amount of expertise in enabling MNOs to extend their reach to rural regions with its cellular backhaul solution. BusinessCom uses VSAT to transport voice and data traffic to and from the population. This provides a highly affordable alternative to the construction of cell towers and infrastructure and enables operators to widen their subscriber base.
