Connecting Rural America: Mobile Backhaul Solutions for Network Coverage Everywhere
Most people think of rural as areas of the U.S. where people and towns are few and far between – the proverbial “farm country.” Often, vacationers drive through rural regions to get from a city to other rural regions – beaches, mountains, lakes, etc. Among the many things these rural areas have in common is, typically, poor cellular service.
This white paper, which was sponsored by Intelsat, discusses the benefits of using satellites for mobile backhaul in rural areas. It also includes the survey results of iGR's May 2020 survey of U.S. mobile consumers in rural and non-rural areas and provides an overview of rural mobile usage and its challenges.
