Crisis Response for Humanitarian Relief
Intelsat embraces its responsibility as a member of the global community. We know it’s not enough to just be aware of our potential for responding to crises, we must also be active in that role and collaborate with our partners globally. After the devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck southern Haiti on August 24th, Intelsat along with our partner Starwin, met the need for equipment and connectivity within 24 hours of the request. By aiding Help.NGO we enabled this organization to provide critical support to the government and citizens of Haiti in their time of humanitarian need.
Community Empowerment Through Broadband
The need for internet connectivity has never been greater. Broadband connectivity does not merely transform individual human potential, it also underpins national efforts to develop knowledge economies, foster digital transformation in government services and digital transition across economic sectors, expand opportunities for enterprises, and provide greater value for citizens and consumers. Broadband connectivity is also widely recognized as a critical enabler of efforts to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Intelsat CEO Stephen Spengler is a United Nations Broadband Commissioner.
