As mobile and fixed wireless networks continue to expand, many residents of rural India are choosing to have a satellite service instead of a cable-based one, to reduce costs and speed.
Relatively few people have satellite-based service because they don’t want to pay for the cable and satellite service they have to pay.
But with more and more people living in remote areas, they are looking for alternative ways to get Internet and other Internet services.
A new type of satellite-equipped mobile phone service is available in rural India.
A company called Skytel, which is based in the country, said it plans to roll out this service in rural areas in 2019.
Skytel says its service, called Skybox, offers a combination of satellite services and voice services that are offered by other operators.
For example, a satellite-enabled smartphone can be used for voice calls and messaging.
A satellite-connected TV box can also be used as a TV tuner.
The company said its service is offered in about 70 villages, and that in a rural area with a population of 100,000, it can cover up to 5,000 households.
A mobile phone can also also be connected to Skybox and use its satellite voice capability, as well as voice messaging.
Skybox is expected to roll the service out in about 10 rural communities.
A similar service is also available in New Delhi.
But unlike Skybox’s service, the new service is not currently available to the general public.
The satellite-ready service is aimed at the people living far from a phone tower, but not the people who rely on it for voice and messaging service.
In fact, the service is only available to those living close to a phone that can transmit a signal.
The service is being rolled out in rural communities in some remote areas of the country because of the increased demand for broadband Internet.
The problem is that the rural population has grown by a lot, and there are no existing mobile towers in these remote areas.
For this reason, the company said, it is working with the Ministry of Telecom and Government of India to find the right location for the satellite-powered service.
