side meeting to discuss satellite broadband and 28GHz debate......posted18Jul19

At the ITU GSR19 held in Port Vila from the 9th to the 12th of July 2019, PITA together with key satellite service providers in Pacific, and Pacific Island countries relying on satellites held a side meeting a day before this event to discuss the need for preserving KA Band spectrum allocation for enhancing and for future satellite broadband, to rural and small island states.

With the fibre-optic submarine cables isolated mainly to the capital centres, and challenges for terrestrial reach for a spread population and maritime islands with very low economic scale, satellite become a cost effective means for bridging any digital divide.

Steps to raise and seek support at subsequent  meetings such as the Asia Pacific Telecommunity APG19-5 will be sought for a possible inclusion in a common Asia Pacific position towards the World Radiocommunication Conference 19.
