Satellite Internet in Tajikistan

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

The mountainous and landlocked country of Tajikistan is located in central Asia and has a population of just over 9 million. The country is bordered by Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and China and is one of the smallest nations in the region. Its economy is based mainly around the export of aluminium and cotton and the cotton industry supports around 75 percent of the country’s rural population. The Tajik government is working to attract international investment in its hydropower industry, which holds a lot of promise. There are also reserves of coal, natural gas and petroleum. The country is recovering from political upheaval which had hindered its development, but this is set for change.

Natural Challenges

There has been strong growth in the Tajik mobile sector, but the telecommunications infrastructure in Tajikistan needs significant improvement. There is quite a challenge ahead to bring the country up to a satisfactory level in terms of access to connectivity. Though 4G and LTE have been launched in the country, which is a very positive development, there is still a long way to go in terms of widespread access. With 70 percent of the population living in rural areas, it is difficult to reach the population with terrestrial technology such as fibre which is difficult and expensive to rollout in remote areas and in areas where the mountainous terrain can cause problems. Therefore, broadband and the Internet is largely restricted to urban areas of Tajikistan.

The Tajik government has adopted a strategy to promote an information society and therefore has identified the development of ICT across the country as a priority. With Internet penetration at 33.1 percent, broadband and Internet access is still very much a work in progress and the use of satellite will enable the government to carry out its pledges and to connect areas that are as yet untapped in terms of telecommunications and broadband Internet access.

BusinessCom Services in Tajikistan

BusinessCom Networks offers VSAT-based satellite services that will extend IP networks to the large population living in rural regions, enabling the government and ISPs to connect untapped communities with a wealth of applications via both shared and dedicated bandwidth that enables access to applications such as email and web browsing to e-health and education, video conferencing and VoIP. This access, combined with the fast deployment and scalability of a VSAT, make rural broadband access an affordable reality with no requirement for expensive rollout of fibre networks which make little financial sense for ISPs. BusinessCom Networks will help you to design, install and operate your VSAT network and will decipher the best and most efficient service for your requirements, along with a bandwidth management system to help to optimise your network.


It is this type of service that will enable remote Tajik communities to enjoy the enormous benefits that high speed connectivity brings in terms of socio economic development, empowering individuals, businesses and communities to aspire to compete in the global marketplace. It also delivers critical services so that the Tajik government can improve healthcare and education and to push its ICT agenda forward.

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.
