Super-speed internet could help Telemedicine

Japan has recently launched a new Satellite capable of providing internet connectivity at speeds of 1.2GB/sec around the world.

The satellite will initially focus on the Asia-Pacific region around Japan.

“Among other uses, this will make possible great advances in telemedicine, which will bring high-quality medical treatment to remote areas, and in distance education, connecting students and teachers separated by great distances,” JAXA said.

  1. hi,

    nice info

    i really want to know how about my feeling when i’m using 1.3GB/sec for internet connection.

    building an infrastructur for high speed internet connection underground is harder than in the sky, although it’s absolutely expensive

  2. This is very exciting news! I have said it again and again – as internet speed and coverage increases, telemedicine technologies will effect health care in ways most can’t imagine.
