NOVEMBER 27, 2017
The publication focuses on particular network architectures in which satellite broadband is the best alternative for the provision of broadband connectivity. It emphasizes that, since operational satellite systems already serve all habitable places on the planet, satellite broadband is an undeniable asset for the LAC region. It illustrates how satellite technology can complement terrestrial networks by providing broadband access almost instantaneously in any geographic location, including underserved areas throughout the world. The objective of this study is to provide decision makers with the necessary working knowledge and information to help them create enabling policies and regulatory environments for the implementation of satellite broadband.
