Satellite Internet in Taiwan

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

Taiwan or the Republic of China (ROC), is neighboured by the People’s Republic of China, Japan and the Philippines and has a population of over 23.5 million people. The country lies on a complex tetonic area, making it prone to earthquakes and a result of this location is evident in its rugged mountains and gently rolling plains, which is where the majority of the population prefer to live. Taiwan is known as one of the ‘Asian Tigers’ alongside Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea. The country has seen massive economic growth and development and its capitalist economy is export driven.

The telecommunications infrastructure in Taiwan is very well developed and there is a very competitive marketplace. As in many Asian countries, it is dominated by mobile. The Taiwanese government is very forward thinking in its approach to communications and it has realised the importance of good infrastructure in terms of making essential services available to the population. As a result, it is developing a digital economy that is making a raft of digital services available such as e-commerce, e-government, e-health, e-learning and also media applications. Today, there is a high penetration of Internet users across Taiwan due to the government’s diligence in trying to connect as many people as possible. The rate stands at 87.9 percent. Mobile Internet has become increasingly popular and there are ambitions to introduce 5G services as well as IoT networks. However, the challenge for the government lies in the improvement of broadband speed in rural areas.

In an attempt to make this happen, the government has initiated its Forward-Looking Infrastructure Construction project which will improve broadband Internet speeds and availability in rural Taiwan. This project pledges to make these changes by 2020.

Potential for Satellte Internet Services

In order to meet this pledge, satellite networks can play a significant part in pushing broadband speeds up further to accommodate a plethora of different applications that the government wish to take to rural regions. Why? Satellite networks are extremely reliable, can be deployed anywhere and offer the broadband speeds required to run bandwidth hungry applications. BusinessCom Networks offers satellite networks that are deployed in the C- and Ku-band range for connectivity that covers all voice and data communications in even the most remote of areas and include specialised services to enable users to gain the best of their bandwidth. The services feature top level security and our installation technicians are local to Taiwan and can install your network quickly. BusinessCom’s team can offer full management of the solution and are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Through BusinessCom’s satellite network, the government can extend its networks cost-effectively and improve broadband speeds instantly, enabling it to deliver essential services such as healthcare, regional administration and rural connectivity with applications such as Virtual Private Networks, VoIP, videoconferencing, email, web and Internet browsing and cloud computing.

For rapid and reliable network extension and high speed broadband access to rural or hard-to-reach areas of Taiwan, satellite networks provide the ideal solution.

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.
