How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

Nicaragua is the largest and least populated country in Central America. It is bordered by Honduras, the Caribbean, Costa Rica and the Pacific Ocean and has a population of 6.2 million. The landscape across Nicaragua is split into three distinct areas; the Pacific lowlands with large fertile valleys; the Amerrisque Mountains and the Mosquito Coast. Nicaragua is primarily an agricultural country and this accounts for 60% of the country’s exports that include tobacco, cassava, bananas and coffee. It is becoming less dependent on fossil fuels and mining is now a growing and important industry for the Nicaraguan economy.

Telecommunications across Nicaragua are available in major urban areas, such as the capital, Managua. However, outside of urban areas, infrastructure is scarce and in need of development. The Nicaraguan broadband network is in its very early stages and requires investment. The World Bank has become involved in an attempt to boost broadband access and is funding the development of the broadband infrastructure across the country. The project, called the Caribbean Regional Communications Infrastructure Program Project aims to increase access to regional broadband networks and advance the development of an Information Technology and Information Technology-Enabled Services (IT and ITES) industry in Nicaragua and the Caribbean region. It will fill key gaps in broadband connectivity on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua to contribute to improved regional telecommunications linkages, to boost human capacity and business development under a regionally harmonized framework and approach, so as to generate employment and position the region and Nicaragua in particular, as a destination of choice for IT businesses.

At present, Nicaraguans tend to access the Internet from cafes, where it is available but the mobile sector is growing and this will be the main method of broadband connectivity for the majority of the population. In 2016, Internet penetration in Nicaragua stood at 19.4%. Mobile phone penetration is growing rapidly.

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.
