Satellite Internet in Malaysia

Malaysia is situated in southeast Asia and is separated into two regions by the South China Sea. It features a land border with Thailand and is a large country with a population of over 30 million. With coastal plains rising to hills and mountains, Malaysia has some truly dramatic landscapes. The Straits of Malacca lie between Sumatra and Malaysia, and they carry over 40% of the world’s trade, making it a key area for shipping. The country’s government has a goal to make Malaysia a high-income country by 2020 and has launched economic and governmental transformation programmes in order to achieve this. The industrial sector leads the economy and Malaysia is engaged in a great deal of international trade through the Straits of Malacca. Manufacturing is also a key sector and the country is one of the world’s largest producers of palm oil.

In terms of the telecoms sector, Malaysia’s is one of the most advanced in the southeast Asian region. The telecoms sector is competitive and has good governmental support. As in other regions across Asia, the mobile and mobile broadband sectors have seen huge growth and have well overtaken fixed line usage. Hand-in-hand with the government’s ambitions for 2020, there is a push to further improve connectivity across the country to enhance e-commerce, e-government, e-health and education. In 2016, 76.6% of the population has access to the Internet and there has been some considerable success in terms of bridging the existing Digital Divide.

Malaysia can further develop its communications infrastructure by using satellite. VSAT connectivity will enable the connection of sites that are currently difficult to reach in order to push mobile broadband into more remote areas. As in many countries, concentration of broadband access is centred over towns and cities with rural communities often too difficult or expensive to reach. The same can be said for businesses that operate outside of these urban centres, but still require a reliable broadband connection for them to operate. BusinessCom Networks provides affordable yet cutting-edge solutions that can connect these businesses or can enable mobile networks to expand far beyond urban regions.
