Satellite Internet in Canada

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

Canada is a vast country located in the northern part of North America. It comprises ten provinces and three territories and extends all the way from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and up northwards towards the Arctic. By area, it is the second largest country in the world. Canada itself has a population of just over 37 million and is sparsely populated given its huge area. The Canadian geography is dominated by large swathes of tundra and forest and therefore, the population tends to be very urbanised with the majority of people living in cities such as Ottowa, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. The climate varies from arctic in the north to hot summers in the south making it a very diverse country. Canada has the world’s tenth largest economy which has seen a transition from rural-based to urban although forestry and agriculture remain key industries, petroleum is also key.

In terms of the telecoms landscape, Canada has a large addressable market for mobile broadband as penetration is relatively low and there is considerable room for expansion. There has been a marked rise in the popularity of mobile broadband and investment is being made in infrastructure to support this demand through upgrades and LTE infrastructure. Fixed line networks are falling due to the customer focus on mobile. In terms of overall broadband penetration, Canada is in a good place at 89.9%. The government is leading the charge to make broadband a right, not a privilege. In 2016, the government declared that it wanted every citizen to be able to access download speeds of at least 50Mbps. However, Canada is such a vast country that, for those people living out of urban areas, it can be a real challenge to gain Internet access. Both mobile networks and ISPs cannot afford to spend the money it takes to rollout networks to these remote regions and therefore, there is a reliance on wireless technology to make the broadband plan work.

Reaching Remote Areas

BusinessCom Networks’ core business is to deliver broadband Internet services to remote areas where infrastructure is a problem. We offer a range of services for individuals, communities and businesses that ensure that connectivity reaches the most rural of places. With mobile broadband in need of a boost, BusinessCom offers a rural mobile network solution that delivers turn-key, fully-managed low-cost voice and data services, including 4G and serves as a GSM network that is fully independent from local infrastructure.

BusinessCom also helps ISPs to grow their subscriber base and to address the challenge of rural access to broadband Internet with our satellite Internet service which allows a reliable and cost-effective service on C- and Ku-band satellites. We have also developed a bandwidth management solution that has been specially tailored for VSAT services so that users can easily manage available bandwidth and therefore maximise their profits.

Reaching the as yet unreachable parts of the world and delivering a reliable, scalable and quality service to customers is where BusinessCom’s business is rooted. We can help to connect the previously inaccessible areas of Canada rapidly and cost-effectively.

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.
