Satellite could deliver broadband services to over a million businesses and households in rural Poland within a year, well ahead of alternative terrestrial network build-outs, according to the European Satellite Operators Association (ESOA).
Speaking at a Cities on Internet conference in Zakopane, ESOA secretary-general Aarti Holla said: ÂMost pending broadband projects will only bring connectivity after 2014 at the earliest, but satellites can make a significant difference immediately; itÂs just a question of being ready to implement it.Â
According to ESOA, despite Poland having access to about Â1bn of EU funds, the country is still faced with significant digital exclusion, with only about 10% of total funds having already been committed to broadband access development, according to the countryÂs Office of Electronic Communications.
