Case Study: Broadband Internet Connectivity For BC’s First Nations

Norsat became the official satellite service provider for FNESS in 2011, serving the 17 First Nations communities involved in the program. Prior to Norsat’s involvement, the infrastructure for satellite connectivity lacked a long term service provider, however, since 2011, over 2300 residents have been given broadband internet access, which they use for social connectivity, health care, education, emergency services and more.
