Today, the country has an extensive fiber optic network to offer FTTH or high-speed broadband connections to urban customers. However, it remains a challenge for companies to provide high-speed internet to rural or remote places. The fiber optic loses its efficiency, and it is also too expensive. This is where Tarana Wireless has a huge edge over the traditional technology setup. The high-speed internet through satellite saves cost, and the benefit can eventually be passed on to the customers.
The setup for the Tarana Wireless home broadband is very simple. The equipment can be installed in the nick of time, and it also resynchronizes the radio signal to minimize interference. The result is a high-speed internet experience for the end user.
Tarana Wireless also serves international customers like UK’s BT Group Plc (British Telecom) and MTN Group Ltd from South Africa. The revenue has been increasing since Q4 2022 and is expected to rise further. The huge jump in valuation is good news for the company and the investors.
