OUTThere magazine, the in-flight magazine for Australia’s largest regional airlines (e.g. Rex (Regional Express), Skywest, Airlink, Airnorth and Skytrans) reports in VSAT satellite technology’s ability to improve remote mine site conditions through providing faster, higher-quality and more cost-effective connectivity.
Today, due to opportunities for remote miners to expand their bandwidth, systems like those of the VSAT satellite technology provide more secure, individual platforms. It allows miners to receive comparable internet speeds and enjoy the latest 5-Star entertainment.
It is a very good idea to give miners this entertainment since being away from home can be very tough on them. Keeping them happy will not motivate them, but will also lead to lower staff turnover rates.
