Satellite Internet in Uzbekistan

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

With a population of over 32 million, Uzbekistan is a doubly landlocked country in Central Asia and is bordered by Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan. It is rich in natural resources with the fourth largest gold deposits in the world and extensive copper and uranium. The country is also home to oil and gas reserves, some of which are as yet untapped. Uzbekistan is also an exporter of cotton, which is central to the economy. Agriculture also employs a large proportion of the population.

Geographic Challenges

Communications in Uzbekistan are in need of significant improvement. However, the government is well aware of the importance of ICT and broadband in the socio-economic development of the country and so, in recent years, there has been much more of a focus on the improvement of telecommunications infrastructure. In Uzbekistan, the mobile sector dominates, and the last three years have seen significant growth in the mobile sector. 4G is being rolled out in the capital, Tashkent, and access to voice and data services is expected to grow over the coming years. In terms of Internet use, just over 50% of the population have access but this is a largely rural population, with over 60% of people living in rural areas. Though the government realises how the socio-economic development of rural areas is linked to ICT access, it is a challenge to connect these regions due to their remoteness and also the terrain where they are located ranging from flat desert to mountains.  Laying cable or fibre to reach these remote communities is incredibly expensive and is often simply not financially viable for communications companies. Therefore, another method of connectivity is required to enable broadband connectivity.

Satellite Services in Uzbekistan

Satellite-based communications operate wherever they are deployed with no requirement for any infrastructure apart from the terminal itself. This means that a VSAT network may be rapidly deployed, providing a cost effective and scalable network that can deliver high speed broadband connectivity for applications such as Internet browsing, video conferencing, telemedicine, email access and so much more. Connection to the Web and to other communications is essential for socio-economic development as it enriches lives, providing health, education, civil and business services that otherwise would be out of reach for many rural communities. BusinessCom has pioneered the provision of VSAT networks for remote areas since its establishment and our experts can design, implement and manage your network and ensure that it meets your requirements within your set budget.

Satellite solutions may also be used to expand ever popular mobile 2G, 3G and 4G services to outlying areas where operators find it extremely challenging both physically and financially, to deploy cell towers. This turn-key, fully managed solution is specifically designed for rural mobile networks and offers a fast Return on investment. By extending the network to these areas, operators increase their subscriber bases and offer access to voice and data services to people that are hungry for access.


Satellite has a much wider role to play in Uzbekistan, enriching lives with a broad spectrum of services but at an affordable price and without expensive terrestrial infrastructure.

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.
