the Challenge

Given the geographic challenges of connecting a country with 7,100 islands and over 20 typhoons per year, just 11,000 of the 42,000 local communities in the Philippines have fiber access today.

Astranis Solution

Astranis and Orbits are launching a MicroGEO satellite dedicated only to the Philippines. This is the first Filipino communications satellite in history, but it won't be the last.


Orbits Corp

Orbits Corp is a satellite services provider and sister company to a local Philippine ISP, HTechCorp, which has over 20 years of experience providing internet services to the 7,000+ islands of the Philippines. Led by Atty Augusto Baculio, Orbits Corp's mission aligns with ours perfectly: to connect unconnected regions, providing them with the tools necessary to thrive in the digital age.
