Thanks to its innovative Ka-band technology, low-cost, two-way satellite delivery is available for wireless broadband Internet connections, telemedicine, teleteaching, teleworking and e-commerce in the most remote regions of Canada.
This initiative addresses the high cost of broadband access for communities in the far and mid-north, and in remote areas of Canada. Broadband access using Anik F2's Ka-band technology provides communities in remote regions with more opportunities to move forward socially and economically. The initiative significantly reduces the cost of providing essential service to these communities. Anik F2 brings the Government of Canada a step closer to its goal of offering high-capacity Internet access to all Canadian communities.
