Formerly known as Siam and located in the centre of the southeast Asian Indochinese peninsula, Thailand comprises 76 provinces. With a population of just over 69 million, the country is home to diverse geography from mountains to beaches and plateaux. Thailand boasts many stunning resorts such as Phuket, Krabi and Phang.

Rapidly Developing Market

Thailand has an emerging economy and is the second largest in southeast Asia after Indonesia. The country is recovering after the Asian financial crisis  and the economy, which is export dependent, is varied and consists of industries such as cars and commercial vehicles, electrical appliances, rice, footwear, rubber and jewellery. Tourism is an important part of the Thai economy and is one of the most visited countries in southeast Asia with Bangkok and the islands very popular destinations with the north of the country popular for trekking holidays. Though tourism is a significant employers, just under half of the population are employed in agriculture.

Communications across Thailand are improving and the mobile sector in particular is enjoying very significant growth. The government has implemented a Digital Economy strategy. This was launched in 2017 and is expected to be completed by 2021. The aim of the strategy is the achieve an integrated, citizen-centric digital government within 5 years. This will mean the launch of digital capabilities in all sectors including agriculture, tourism, education, healthcare, disaster prevention and public administration. This will make Thailand more competitive as a country. Therefore, the digital infrastructure of the country has to be strengthened. A major aim of the programme is to give all Thais access to broadband Internet as a basic utility. Today, Internet penetration stands at 82.4 percent. However, there are some challenges ahead as the government strives to deploy broadband to all villages in order to achieve the vision.

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.
