Topic: Delivering inexpensive and reliable internet access to billions – Why Satellite Remains Vital in Today’s Increasingly Connected World

Different markets present a wide array of communication means. Varying landscapes, population density and capacity needs drive the need for different infrastructures. Even today, needs tend to be diverse, although the advent of fiber has provided greater access to previously cut-off areas. But fiber is not always the answer. It can suffer from reliability issues and it is expensive. Consequently, it is unlikely we will see it in remote and distant regions especially in India any time soon. Meanwhile, the progress made with other technologies opens up opportunities too. Satellite is a key example, offering cost-effectiveness, rapid deployment time and vast coverage area
