Satellite Internet in the USA

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

With a population of over 326.5 million people, the United States of America is the world’s third most populous country. With fifty nation states, and a diverse geography and climate, the country is vast and ranks fourth in the world in terms of its size. It is the world’s most powerful nation state. The distribution of population consists of large urban clusters of people that are concentrated in rural areas such as Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Houston, Miami and Washington, DC. The geography of the United States is diverse, from mountain ranges such as the Rockies and the Appalachians to deserts in the southwest and dense forests in the north. The prairies are less densely populated and account for a great deal of agriculture in the country. The U.S. is a mixed economy with a great deal of natural resources. It is the largest producer of oil in the world and also has a solid mining and agricultural sector.

Connecting Remote Areas

Though a powerful country, there is still work to do in terms of connecting the American population. In 2016, Internet penetration stood at 76.18%. The country’s mobile networks are currently undergoing upgrade and expansion. WIth demand for mobile data on a growth path across the country, LTE networks are being rolled out. There is high smartphone penetration. A heavy focus is being placed on 5G, and trials are currently ongoing with a race underway for providers to launch the first services which are expected at the end of 2018. However, the challenge for the broadband market is to reach rural areas.

In a 2015 FCC report, it was confirmed that 55 million Americans (17% of the population) lacked access to advanced broadband and that a significant Digital Divide exists between urban and rural America with over half of all Americans lacking access to 25Mbps/3Mbps service. The report also found that 35% of schools lacked access to fibre networks that can support the digital learning tools of today.

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.
