Global Challenges I Satellite Answers – Connecting The Unconnected In Latam

18 December 2020 / Virtual

For operators and governments working to bridge the Digital Divide, a Satellite-Enabled Community Wi-Fi solution from Hughes quickly and easily enabled Internet service to hundreds of users at a time. Whether offering service under a Universal Service Obligation (USO) or through a shared subscription model, the Wi-Fi Hotspot, combined with High-Throughput Satellite backhaul, makes expanding Internet access affordable for governments and providers seeking to reach unserved and underserved communities.

This webinar will discuss Hughes’ Satellite-Enabled Community W-Fi platform, the technologies and economics involved, as well as the benefits for remote and isolated communities, which have historically been denied broadband connectivity.
