Satellite Internet in the Bahamas

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

The popular holiday destination of the Bahamas is located in the Atlantic Ocean, north of Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic and east of the Florida Keys. An archipelago of over 700 islands, the Bahamas are low and flat and feature high ridges and the long sandy beaches that they are famed for. The climate and landscape of the Bahamas is very popular with holidaymakers and the island is heavily reliant upon tourism which accounts for 60 percent of GDP and provides employment for over half of the workforce. A huge percentage of visitors that arrive in the Bahamas do so on cruise ships.  Financial services also form an important part of the economy at 15 percent GDP. The Bahamas has managed to attract a great deal of foreign financial business. Agriculture also represents an important part of the economy and the islands export crops such as onions, okra, grapefruit, cucumbers, lemons and limes. The islands were hit hard by the recession, but have made a good recovery.

The population of the Bahamas stands at just under 400,000 and today, 83.4% of the population have access to the Internet. Telecom and broadband are growth areas for the islands and the high dependence on both tourism and the financial sector means that the Bahamas must have robust communications infrastructure to cope with these demands.

Mobile data is enjoying great popularity as it does across the Caribbean. There are 92 subscriptions per every 100 inhabitants, according to the ITU. The mobile phone is an easy way for islanders to access the Internet and therefore mobile data is going to be key moving forward. Investment is being made in the rollout of LTE infrastructure. Almost all hotels have Wi-Fi, but speeds can be slow on more remote islands in the archipelago.

Satellite Internet in the Bahamas

In order to boost speeds and to make broadband accessible across all islands of the Bahamas, BusinessCom Networks offer a comprehensive satellite-based VSAT solution that cost effectively allows broadband Internet access in the more remote islands, allowing locals and tourists to enjoy connectivity no matter where they happen to be. BusinessCom has access to an extensive satellite fleet and we are an extremely flexible and competitive VSAT service provider.

With a population of over 51 million, South Korea is located in the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. The country is home to dramatic, mountainous landscapes, coastal plains, rolling hills and valleys. The country has gone through a great transformation, to become a technological powerhouse and a global provider of electronics and other high technology products and also vessels such as cruise ships.

South Koreans have a very urban-based lifestyle and the country is very technologically advanced with an educated and skilled workforce. The country is the world’s largest spender on R&D and is renowned as an innovator.

As a technological nation, one would expect to see high levels of smartphone adoption and networks that can accommodate this usage. South Korea boasts the highest smartphone ownership in the world and there is excellent 4G LTE coverage across the country. South Korea also has the world’s fastest Internet speed overall, and both mobile and fixed line infrastructure delivers high speeds. The country is also making its move towards 5G and network tests are currently being carried out in areas of Seoul.

South Korea is very well connected, especially in urban areas, where the majority of the population live, but there are still areas of population that are not yet connected to the Internet and this is something that can be addressed using satellite-based solutions. The South Korean government has placed great emphasis on the use of broadband for essential services such as e-government, e-health and e-learning and has used this to good effect. To take these services to those who do not currently have access in more remote locations across the country, satellite provides an ideal, cost-effective solution. BusinessCom is a leading provider of VSAT broadband services for areas that are currently not connected by terrestrial connectivity means. VSAT terminals are easy to deploy even in mountainous and inhospitable areas where it is impossible to put down terrestrial networks. They allow the full range of IP services, enabling communities to enjoy the benefits that broadband brings to urban areas.

For mobile broadband, BusinessCom can provide connectivity for rural mobile networks where Mobile Network Operators can struggle to access, bringing more ubiquitous connectivity in remote regions of South Korea. Delivery of 2G, 3G and 4G services is made easy and the infrastructure is completely independent of local infrastructure.

With the deployment of 5G on the cards in South Korea, satellite will also have an important role to play in terms of providing coverage in areas that are more difficult to reach.

Though South Korea is a very well connected and technologically advanced country, there is still some requirement for the delivery of services in the more hard to reach areas. Satellite-based solutions from BusinessCom provide easy, scalable and cost-effective access to the broadband connectivity that is so important to our modern world. BusinessCom can provide full assistance at every step to tailor a network that suits your requirements whether you are a business, governmental organisation or community.
