When and how satellite broadband makes sense

Satellite technology literally comes ‘from above’, and is independent from terrestrial infrastructure - unlike Fibre, ADSL or mobile wireless technologies. Satellite broadband is available everywhere and makes even more sense in remote areas that other technologies cannot reach.

Unreliable and intermittent connectivity has a negative impact on users – it provides uncertainty and can be a major burden resulting in the slowing down of economic activity on a regular basis in many regions, even in peri-urban areas. This is why gaining access to reliable internet is so important.
