A small country of just 180 miles long and 68 miles wide, Belize is located in Central America and is bordered by Guatemala, Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. As a country with the lowest population (just under 382,500) and population density in Central America, the country is very diverse culturally and also has an equally diverse ecosystem. Belize has a small economy which is based upon private enterprise: export of petroleum, crude oil, agriculture, agro industry, merchandising and some tourism.
Belize’s telecoms infrastructure is in need of development. Though the telecom sector was liberalised in 2003, the incumbent has held the monopoly since. In 2017, Internet penetration stood at 52.3%. Though Internet access is available, it is expensive and the broadband speed is not as high as in other areas of the Americas. There has been a recent push to improve access and this has resulted in the rollout of 4G and LTE for mobile access, fibre optic roll out and also FTTH broadband Internet. The country’s cellular service is also very expensive and uses dated phone models.
Satellite-based broadband Internet could not only enable the Internet to be more easily accessed across Belize, but would also achieve this is a cost effective way. BusinessCom Networks have been deploying satellite-based broadband networks using VSAT terminals since 2003 and the team has great experience in the design, implementation and operation of these easy-to-deploy networks.
Satellite-based Internet access can transform Belizean’s access to very important information and resources that can help the country to further develop socio-economically. Individuals, communities, businesses and organisations benefit in a plethora of ways through access to a reliable broadband connection which opens up a whole new world of communications and enables them to interact with each other and the outside world as never before. BusinessCom can help a range of users and industries such as oil and gas, maritime, ISPs, government, businesses, healthcare providers and Mobile Network Operators to enhance coverage, reliability and speed. VSAT networks are very scalable, can be deployed anywhere, regardless of difficult locations or terrain, and deliver the high-speed and high quality service that users are looking for.
