Ayala-led Globe Telecom is reportedly teaming up with broadband technology manufacturer Curvalux to explore the possibility of using low earth orbit satellites to improve internet access in remote parts of the Philippines. GMA News cites the telco as saying that under the plan, Curvalux would use its satellite broadband constellation CurvaNet to provide high speed access in areas that cannot be easily reached by more traditional technologies – powered by low-cost, solar-powered customer terminals. Curvalux is a division of technology firm Airspace Internet Exchange (AirspaceIX) involved in wireless broadband, with a system designed specifically for operators and ISPs.
