Hello everyone,
We are a small ISP in Afghanistan (7,500 Costumers) we are looking to expand our costumer base ( up to 100,000 costumers )
We are currently using the connection of another company that charges us per user.
We need to establish a satellite connection with high bandwidth 1 GB now with the possibility of increasing up to 10 GB.
please email me at samtf1@gmail.com if you have any offers.
Thank you
Sam

How many Mbit/s up and down do you use at the moment ?

Best regards, Eric.

Right now we have 256 Mbit/s up and 128 down.
How knowing that would that benefit you?
Thank you

I am a bit puzzled by your figures "256 Mbit/s up and 128 down"

Normally for mixed internet access and VoIP  purposes the downlink is larger than the uplink.  Also, a typical small ISP might have a satellite link capacity more like 750 kbit/s down and 256 kbit/s up and perhaps 75 customer PCs.

These figures can be scaled for any number of customers on the basis of 10kbit/s down/ 3kbit/s up per PC or 12kbit/s up & down per VoIP phone.

Satellite costs are approx $2500 - $7000 per month per Mbit/s.

For 7500 customers I estimate that you need about 75 Mbit/s download and 25 Mbit/s upload, and this would need almost two satellite transponders (one each way).

That is feasible, provided there is sufficient spare capacity available.

To obtain capacities like 1 Gbit/s to 10 Gbit/s you need to help in the planning process for future new satellites.  Think in terms of participating in a new Ka band satellite where there might be enough bandwidth.

Best regards, Eric.
