Amatrice Instant response
Help when its needed
We were asked to provide Internet coverage for the relief workers and the survivors of the terrible Amatrice Earthquake disaster, we provided four systems serving upwards of 1000 people - free of charge.
We deployed in Amatrice town centre, Red Cross command centre, Aid distribution centre and the ANPAS camp.
Future rapid disaster deployment Involvement
A secure Future
It became apparent with the Amatrice disaster that Internet provision is one of the cornerstones of the relief effort in the modern age. It provides an early lifeline for the victims and aid workers to the outside world,ensuring that their voice is heard and that loved ones are kept up to date.
We will be at the core of future Italian deployments
Working in unison with other Aid Agencies
Amatrice was a lesson in how all the different agencies work together to produce a cohesive result.
The Red Cross was the lead agency, along with Civil Protection, ANPAS, Police, Carabinieri, Firemen, Army, Navy, Forestale and even the Coastguard agency, all working living and sleeping as one unit
The power of the Earthquake is terrifiying! The damage was not uniform over a large area, it was very local and unfortunately the worst effects were actually in Amatrice.
It was as though a bomb had scored a direct hit on the town centre
With 282 fatalities out of a town of 2500 souls, nearly every household had lost at least one member of family. This is a cosmopolitan town, not far from Rome, people had relatives all over the world and they were living in a strange place, no money, no luxuries, no phone service - that is why we did our job!

Things you should know!
What does Speeds "Up to" actually mean?
Fast and Reliable
With satellite broadband from Europasat you will enjoy download speeds of up to 22Mbps, although this does vary slightly depending on which satellite we can connect you to in your location.
In any event you will be able to access up to speeds at 15Mbps wherever you are.
What does ‘up to’ mean?
In common with all other broadband technologies, satellite broadband is a ‘contended’ service which means that your speed at any given time is determined by a number of factors.
These factors include general elements such as the internet’s general functioning and server speed of websites you’re trying to access at the time, through to the more specific factor of the number of other users you are sharing the network’s bandwdith with at a given moment.
The ‘up to’ speeds which are quoted by all providers across broadband technologies describe the maximum download speed in Megabits per second (Mbps) that you can expect to achieve with that service. Similarly, upload speeds are described as ‘up to’ and with satellite broadband these can be as high as 6Mbps although 2Mbps is the average.
What speeds you can expect?
This will vary according to the ‘busyness’ of the network at any given time and typically during peak hours of usage speeds may drop down into the low single figures for a time. Peak hours tend to be between 5pm – 11pm on weekdays, but this can vary from country to country.
The companies that manage the network infrastructure use sophisticated network management systems (you may hear referred to as ‘NMS’) in order to ensure that the bandwidth available on their network is shared out fairly amongst customers. The way that demand is managed based on a Fair Access Policy (FAP), and you can find more information on how these work for your system here.
A report by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission in 2014 found that satellite broadband on average achieved the closest speeds to the speeds advertised than any other technology in the market.
Satellite broadband speeds may not be the highest available and of course in common with fibre, ADSL or wireless they are not always at the ‘up to’ speeds, but in locations where it’s needed because of lack of alternative infrastructure, we’re confident you’ll find it an excellent solution.
What Equipment do I need?
Rent or Buy!
In order to access satellite broadband services you need to have a satellite broadband kit which is all self installable. Europasat can supply everything you need to get started in one simple delivery. Depending on your intended usage and where you want to site the kit there may be a couple of other bits and pieces you’d like to consider.
Antenna (or Dish)
This is usually mounted externally on your property, but can also be free-standing or mounted on flat roof if required.
Transceiver & Cable
The transceiver is attached to the antenna and the cable supplied is routed into the property to be linked to the satellite modem.
This is located in the property and devices such as desktops and laptops can be connected via a cable. You’ll just need to consider where you want to locate your modem and whether you’ll require more than the standard length of cable for the wiring run to the transceiver. Most customers will also wish to access the internet by wireless and we offer a range of suitable routers which will work seamlessly with the satellite system.
VOIP (Optional extra)
In addition to the supplementary antenna mounting and router options, you may also want to take advantage of our telephone service using VOIP technology which is optimised specifically for the high latency around Satellite Broadband. To obtain this service, you would be provided with a VOIP phone which simply connects into a router using an Ethernet cable. This is beneficial for those in rural areas with a lack of telephone services or reception. This will also help slash phone call costs and minimise the amount of data used while making calls.
To see how it all fits together to provide you with high-speed broadband, view our video below.
*Self-installation is perfectly easy if you are handy with a drill and we supply installation videos to help you. However, if you would prefer a professional installation, please contact us and we will arrange for a local accredited Europasat installer to visit for our standard professional installation charge.
