Around 600 million people across the globe still live in areas without access to mobile broadband coverage. Of this unconnected population, 52 million are in Latin America with 9.9 million living in rural areas of the region. Mobile operators and internet service providers, although eager to meet the connectivity needs of Latin America, face significant challenges using terrestrial backhaul to expand mobile coverage to sparsely populated rural communities in this region due to their remote, hard-to-reach locations.
Mobile broadband opens doors to social and economic progress for unconnected communities by providing access to opportunities and information that can fuel personal and community growth.
In this webinar, we will take a closer look at the challenges providers face when expanding connectivity to unconnected areas of Latin America, and the crucial role advanced satellite technologies and services play in quickly and cost-effectively connecting these rural and hard-to-reach communities.
