Thousands of schools, health clinics, and other services. Three million students. All connected to the internet. Together, it’s possible.
From north to south, Brazil is home to more than 200 million people of different ages, races, and cultures. Today, only half of them have access to the internet. But the partnership between Viasat and Telebras for the Programa Nacional de Banda Larga (National Broadband Program) makes it possible for citizens from hard-to-reach regions to connect to a network of 4 billion people worldwide.
This partnership transforms the reality of Brazilians, bringing internet access where it wasn’t possible before with the reach of the SGDC-1 satellite from Telebras and Viasat’s accessible and scalable network.
Transforming the future of Brazil
- For the first time, children from historically disconnected regions will have access to information from around the world – just a few clicks away and in just a few seconds
- Teachers from schools in small communities will have more resources to prepare their students with current lesson plans and updated resources from the internet
- Together, Viasat and Telebras are making global education a reality for all Brazilians
