In a public demonstration, Viasat and Jamaican operator ReadyNet successfully showed how Viasat’s high-speed satellite internet service could help connect communities and businesses across Jamaica.
The demonstration took place in Portland, Jamaica, a community located on the northeast coast of the island, and showcased the ViaSat-2 satellite. The demonstration aimed to show how the satellite could deliver connectivity and broadband satellite speeds that are faster, and more resistant to hurricane and other outages, than current island terrestrial-based services. The demonstration also aimed to show how businesses and government organizations could connect to critical business applications such as cloud-based collaboration, Voice-Over-IP (VoIP), email, point-of-sale transactions, high-speed file transfers, streaming video, and more.
“The collaboration between Viasat and ReadyNet creates an opportunity for many Jamaican business owners and government officials to use satellite broadband in new ways,” said Chris Dehring, CEO of ReadyNet. “Through Viasat’s high-speed satellite internet service we could offer an economical solution that can be quickly installed and online anywhere across the island. Because of its capabilities, we are exploring ways to deliver Viasat’s satellite internet service to connect multiple Caribbean territories.”
