How Viasat is bringing connectivity to millions in rural Mexico
Viasat, Ubix to connect more Mexican schools and clinics, contributing to the ‘Internet para Todos’ program
The initiative will benefit schools, clinics and government sites by delivering reliable high-speed internet to areas where connectivity options were previously limited or nonexistent.
Addition of Community Wi-Fi hotspots will include installations at schools, libraries, healthcare centers and other institutional spots where the service will bring the most benefit.
Viasat and Facebook propose to accelerate the rollout of Viasat’s Community Wi-Fi, with Facebook helping to identify unconnected and poorly connected communities in Mexico that would benefit from Viasat’s service.
Viasat Community Wi-Fi hotspots are expanding fast, linking people in previously unconnected remote Mexican villages with internet and telephone services
In many areas, Viasat satellite internet technology is reaching students who couldn't get online before. Even better service is on the way with ViaSat-3.
An urban version of the Viasat Community Wi-Fi service successfully launched throughout rural Mexico soon to be available in cities
