Satellite Internet in the Honduras

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

Honduras is a country in Central America with a population of nearly 9.5 million. Bordered by Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua, it is a country dominated by mountains with narrow plains along its coastal regions. It is also a country of contrasting landscapes with rainforests, savannah and mangroves. Honduras is rich in natural resources such as minerals, coffee, tropical fruit and sugar cane. Though the economy depends heavily upon agriculture, the country is very susceptible to natural disasters such as hurricanes which destroy crops. The economy is largely based on small scale agriculture and also the manufacture of clothing is an important part of the economy.

Access to communications and the Internet in Honduras requires significant work. In 2016, Internet penetration was 21.5%. Fixed line infrastructure is not widespread and tends to only be accessible in urban areas. The topography of the country makes it difficult and expensive to reach rural areas, which means that rural connectivity is difficult to achieve. The development of the Internet across the country requires investment to enhance its reach and impact. Where the Internet is available, it tends to be expensive and speeds become considerably slower outside of urban centres. The availability of Internet access has led to the widespread adoption of mobile services and mobile penetration in 2017 stood at 90.58%, according to Statista.

Satellite Internet Solutions in Honduras

Satellite-based Internet access and also cellular backhaul could help Honduras to overcome some of its challenges. A universal access programme has begun rollout to take Internet into schools to be used as a tool for learning. It is this kind of initiative that will drive socio-economic development upwards. BusinessCom Networks have been delivering satellite-based Internet, cellular backhaul and services for individuals, enterprise and government since 2003 and have extensive experience of in the delivery of VSAT-based networks that transform lives, businesses, education, healthcare and so many other aspects of daily life. Satellite connectivity is affordable and can be installed literally anywhere, regardless of challenging topography, meaning that nowhere is out of bounds and even the most remote communities can be reached. Through an Internet connection, the Honduran people can gain access to many resources, tool and information that can empower and enrich their lives.

With mobile telephony so popular in Honduras, yet with many people in rural areas still unable to connect to a reliable network, BusinessCom can provide a fully managed rural mobile network solution that is completely independent of existing infrastructure and that delivers low cost voice and data services to any handset.

Satellite can play a very important part in enhancing the lives of the Honduran population by offering low cost and highly reliable connectivity to areas that otherwise would not benefit. Internet access and reliable voice communications are essential in the development of services that can help people to improve their lives through better education, better healthcare, better access to governmental services and thus overall improvement of socio-economic conditions. BusinessCom can help to deliver the solutions that can take all of these crucial services to rural areas of Honduras and can help to design the solution that is perfect for the user – and that makes financial sense too.

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.
