Kacific Broadband Satellites Group (Kacific) has seen success at this year's World Business Outlook Awards, taking out the top spot for Most Accessible and Affordable Broadband Services Provider Singapore and Best Broadband Satellite Operator Singapore 2022.

Celebrating world-class leaders, the World Business Outlook Awards recognise those who have mastered a successful business strategy, provided industry value, and fostered leadership talents.

Satellite broadband connectivity is crucial for furthering economic and social development, especially where unmet demand exists. Kacific was recognised for its success in providing affordable, accessible, high-quality services and infrastructure throughout the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

Kacific has brought efficient and fast broadband to hard-to-reach communities that need it the most. Through its local partners, the company has connected over 1,900 education institutions and over 260 medical centres with reliable, fast, and affordable internet connectivity. In addition, it has connected a large number of residential, business, and government sites.

This is the reason it won the award for Best Broadband Satellite Operator Singapore 2022. 

Whereas in the most accessible and affordable broadband services provider category, Kacific stood out with the success of its retail franchisee model based on its flexible Gigstarter product. 

This turnkey solution increases the affordability and accessibility of broadband services, giving ISPs an affordable alternative to wholesale broadband contracts. 

Gigstarter provides a pay-as-you-grow model tailored to each ISP. The end-user plans for residential, business and enterprise customers offer high-speed broadband starting at as little as US$110 per month.  

Kacific satellite dishes are light and easily transportable and can even be solar-powered. This helps quickly connect even the most remote and isolated users.

Kacific maintains a full remotely-managed bandwidth service. Internet service providers distribute and install the dish.

Another winning factor for Kacific was its ability to provide broadband services via small, light, and easy-to-install VSAT terminals. This has eliminated the requirements of heavy investments in infrastructure, helping smaller ISPs and entrepreneurs to gain access to their local market.

“We are honoured to win two awards at the World Business Outlook Awards. This is a great source of motivation for us to continue expanding our reach across the globe, connecting more unserved and underserved communities with our latest broadband technology. By focusing on accessibility, affordability and local support, Kacific will continue to bridge the digital divide, ensuring no one is left behind in the digital age,” says Christian Patouraux, CEO and Founder, Kacific. 

The Kacific Broadband Satellites Group is a next-generation broadband satellite operator providing access to affordable, high-speed broadband across Southeast Asia and the Pacific. 
Kacific uses advanced, multi-beam space and ground communications technologies to provide a high-quality service to businesses, governments, and communities.

Kacific1, its high-throughput Ka-band satellite, connects underserved rural and suburban areas, fostering greater internet usage, fuelling economic growth, and improving the delivery of critical services across the region.

Kacific is headquartered in Singapore, with main operations out of Vanuatu.
