High Speed Broadband for All of Alaska

With Pacific Dataport, we’re bringing connectivity to America’s last frontier.

The Challenge

About 37% of rural Alaskans lack access to high-speed  broadband—especially in the extremely remote, rural areas that need connectivity most of all.

Astranis Solution

Astranis partnered with Pacific Dataport, Inc. to launch a single Ka-band satellite dedicated only to Alaska. The satellite will triple the state’s satellite bandwidth while cutting wholesale internet costs in half.
