What is the most cost effective way to bring broadband at short notice and minimum expense to a remote tourist resort?
The answer was given by an operator in Mexico when requested at very short notice to cover a brand new tourist resort with 3G services. The resort was about 6km from the nearest existing tower but the signal did not make it even halfway to the resort.
See the answer in the following report summary:
In many other similar cases, use of the VEGA very high gain, very narrow beam antenna has demonstrated that even in difficult terrain situations, good coverage can be provided to target areas 10, 15 and even 25 kms from the nearest available tower.
