No matter how many forecasts on the future they may venture, these often take into account the destination to be reached and few times the route necessary to reach them.
Everything, from the application of new technologies to geopolitical changes, passes through the most disparate variables that not infrequently force us futurologists to review (generally downwards) the initial estimates.
Let's take the web in Italy: connectivity, user participation, access to e-commerce, the digital divide: how much of what we still live today would have been foreseeable even just 3 years ago? In the coming year, the slowdown in access to broadband will allow countries like Romania and Bulgaria, now last in the rankings, to overtake us in terms of connectivity. Italy is "the country with the lowest percentage of connections above 10 Mbps, which do not even reach 15% of the total (against a European average of 59,2%): only Cyprus is worse off than us in terms of connections" broadband '”(I-Com Report 2013).
How can this state of affairs be overcome, if not by resorting to strategic solutions that go beyond current schemes? We ask Heaven for help, one way out could be precisely the so-called satellite internet.
Tooway, for example, already offers services based on a satellite, KA-SAT, put into orbit with the precise and sole purpose of providing inbound and outbound connectivity. Whatever the remote village in the mountains or the nuclear-free province, all you need is a modem and a dish: to use a system like this you don't even need a telephone line. The costs are now equal to those of a normal ADSL service, infinitely greater reachability.
High speed internet for everyone. Satellite Adsl, let's start here then maybe we'll go back to seeing more "green" in our forecasts. For info find everything on this page.
