Satellite Internet in Singapore

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

With a population of over 5.7 million, Singapore is a sovereign city state located in southeast Asia at the very southern tip of the Malay peninsula. Singapore consists of one main island and 62 islets. 17.4 million tourists visited Singapore in 2017 and the tourist industry is a critical part of the economy but alongside tourism, Singapore has developed itself into a global commerce, transport and finance hub. The World Economic Forum has recognised the state as the most technology-ready nation and the country holds the third highest GDP per capita in the world. This highly developed market economy has a reputation for being a friendly place to do business, innovative, free and competitive.

Global Hub

It’s no surprise to discover that Singapore is also a world leader in telecoms and the government has been very focused on building a very competitive and progressive regulatory environment for the sector. As in many other nations across Asia, Singapore is dominated by the mobile sector with very high penetration rates in terms of mobile device ownership. The Internet is most widely access via mobile networks and the government has launched and completed a Next Generation Broadband Network which has improved connectivity and broadband speeds. Singapore is being positioned as a ‘Smart Nation’ which will see the use of data and analytics to encourage further economic growth and to benefit society as a whole. Singaporeans love the Internet and spend a lot of time on their mobile devices. In 2016, over 82% of the population had access to the Internet. 4G is gradually being rolled out across the country and 5G is most definitely on the horizon.

Though Singapore is a futuristic country and it has excellent broadband access, there are still some parts of the population that do not yet have connectivity. For Singapore to take its broadband penetration rate still further, it can turn to satellite to make the difference.

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.
