Puerto Jiménez – Rural Satellite Internet is a Reality!
The plane banks left across the Golfo Dulce and it is more than evident why National Graphic calls the Osa Peninsula “one of the most biologically intense places on earth”. Getting off the plane the humidity envelopes you and you realize this is not what you had envisioned as Puerto Jiménez. It’s small. It’s laid back. Only about 3,000 people live here, (6000 in the town). And they are about to experience a life-changing event.
This is a nature-lovers dream with a totally different vibe because it’s “small town”, #CostaRica surrounded by lush tropical forests and coastal waters where people are friendly and have raised their families through generations. It is essentially a tourist destination however, in the 1960s it was all about gold mining and logging. Today it is a popular place for tourist activity because it’s close to the Corcovado National Park and is a great place for hiking, biking, sport fishing, whale watching, kayaking, birdwatching, and visiting pristine local beaches. Although it’s small and not like other “vacation” towns. It has an active nightlife with several bars and restaurants, a supermarket, several clothing and shoe stores, a bakery, an art gallery, and several other shops. Hotels and hostels in #PuertoJiménez, include Lunas Hostel, Cabinas Jimenez, Crocodile Bay Resort, and other vacation rentals.

Another benefit of satellite internet is that it is not as affected by weather as terrestrial broadband is.

This makes it more cost-effective to install and maintain for the service provider and that represents efficiency for Itellum to offer this service.
