The digital revolution has affected different communities around the world in vastly different ways. More specifically, the telecommunications revolution has created a major digital divide both regionally, between urban and rural areas, and globally, between developed and developing nations.
As a result, billions of people in the developing world remain unconnected to the internet, and thus economically and socially isolated from the global community. In fact, today there are nearly four billion under-served and under-connected people worldwide. Most of these disconnected populations live in rural regions. Connecting the unconnected through Satellite Wi-Fi internet would allow for greater progress toward social, and economic growth and stability.
Providing satellite internet connectivity for all, including the most remote and isolated communities, is an enormous market opportunity. In fact, the small satellite market is expected to expand to $7.1 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 20.5% from 2020-2025. The market growth is a result of increased demand for broadband internet throughout the world. Pico-Grid is perfectly positioned to meet the needs of this emerging market.Learn more →
