Broadband Key to American Samoa's Economic Recovery

American Samoa's US $100 million dollar investment in fiber to the home networking and broadband satellite connectivity is well positioned to drive a 21st century economic revival.



O3b Networks, the mid altitude broadband satellite provider, notes in its January 2013 blog:

The American Samoa Telecommunications Authority (ASTCA) and O3b also struck a recent deal to provide up to 1.2Gbps of future broadband connectivity to an island nation currently served by a single submarine fiber cable and expensive conventional satellite services. On the very first day the O3b fleet is operational, ASTCA will double its broadband capacity, dramatically improve network speeds, affordability and the overall Internet experience across American Samoa.
