Forsway, the World Bank and Facebook on “Emerging Markets Could be Key to Future Satellite Profitability”

March 2016: “Satellite 2016”, the world’s No 1 satellite event, was recently held in Washington. Forsway’s Chairman Mats Andersson debated, together with the World Bank, Facebook and Inmarsat about the digital divide and was later quoted in the magazine "Via Satellite" as follows:

"Regarding 5G...the cost to go from 1Gbps to 10 Gbps is enormous. I believe that there is more potential to make money going from 10 Kbps to 1 Mbps. The developing countries could be the new revenue source and these countries now focusing on 5G might be in for a surprise."
