Satellite Internet in the Vietnam

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

Vietnam is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula and is the world’s 14th most populous country with just under 96.5 million inhabitants. Geographically, the country is comprised mainly of mountains, hills and dense forests with some lowlands. Historically, the country was highly dependent upon wet rice cultivation and also bauxite mining, but Vietnam’s economy has been dramatically diversified. Today, the economy is thriving and it has become a hub for hi-tech industries. The oil industry is also becoming an increasingly important sector. Vietnam has become one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and is expected to sustain this growth into the future.

Rapidly Developing Asian Tiger

Telecommunications in Vietnam are undergoing change thanks to a government programme which seeks to develop broadband infrastructure across the country in order to fuel socio-economic development. In 2016, the government approved a programme to expand fixed broadband Internet coverage to 40% of households and individuals by 2020. Through the programme the government is also seeking to improve 3G and 4G coverage to cover 95% of residential areas to help with the promotion of e-government, e-commerce and disaster prevention services and a selection of online public services.

At present, Vietnam has low mobile broadband and high mobile penetration and 55 million of its population is connected to the Internet. Therefore, significant work is required to meet the challenge of connecting rural areas that are currently on the wrong side of the Digital Divide.

Satellite Solutions in Vietnam

BusinessCom Networks has extensive experience in the provision of satellite-based solutions that can help to address lack of connectivity in even the hardest to reach regions of Vietnam. The primary concern for the Vietnamese government is to facilitate broadband connectivity to outlying regions and the can be simply and cost-effectively achieved using highly flexible VSAT solutions that can either provide a fast deploy network for broadband communications or to extend mobile broadband networks out to areas that network operators find it very difficult to reach.

BusinessCom can provide a highly scalable VSAT-based solution that provides broadband to the untapped areas of Vietnam in C- and Ku-band. Our highly knowledgeable engineers will help to design the optimum solution for the requirements of the user. We use a combination of shared and dedicated bandwidth allowing minimum levels of service and the option to use higher levels of bandwidth to facilitate faster downloads.

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.
