Satellite Internet in the Belize

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

A small country of just 180 miles long and 68 miles wide, Belize is located in Central America and is bordered by Guatemala, Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. As a country with the lowest population (just under 382,500) and population density in Central America, the country is very diverse culturally and also has an equally diverse ecosystem. Belize has a small economy which is based upon private enterprise: export of petroleum, crude oil, agriculture, agro industry, merchandising and some tourism.

Underdeveloped Infrastructure

Belize’s telecoms infrastructure is in need of development. Though the telecom sector was liberalised in 2003, the incumbent has held the monopoly since. In 2017, Internet penetration stood at 52.3%. Though Internet access is available, it is expensive and the broadband speed is not as high as in other areas of the Americas. There has been a recent push to improve access and this has resulted in the rollout of 4G and LTE for mobile access, fibre optic roll out and also FTTH broadband Internet. The country’s cellular service is also very expensive and uses dated phone models.

Satellite-based broadband Internet could not only enable the Internet to be more easily accessed across Belize, but would also achieve this is a cost effective way. BusinessCom Networks have been deploying satellite-based broadband networks using VSAT terminals since 2003 and the team has great experience in the design, implementation and operation of these easy-to-deploy networks.

Satellite-based Internet access can transform Belizean’s access to very important information and resources that can help the country to further develop socio-economically. Individuals, communities, businesses and organisations benefit in a plethora of ways through access to a reliable broadband connection which opens up a whole new world of communications and enables them to interact with each other and the outside world as never before. BusinessCom can help a range of users and industries such as oil and gas, maritime, ISPs, government, businesses, healthcare providers and Mobile Network Operators to enhance coverage, reliability and speed. VSAT networks are very scalable, can be deployed anywhere, regardless of difficult locations or terrain, and deliver the high-speed and high quality service that users are looking for.

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.
