Our Values

Driving Connectivity Into New Territories

Kacific’s purpose is to make a rapid and lasting difference to the people of South East Asia and the Pacific by providing high-quality, low-cost satellite broadband accessible from a small, easy-to-install and affordable antenna. Broadband connectivity enables critical government services to reach the heart of otherwise vulnerable rural communities.

Banishing Digital Darkness

We are committed to using proven space technologies to solve the endemic lack of affordable broadband internet in remote and underserved regions and locations of the world. Satellite connectivity drives economic growth, provides infrastructure freedom to communities and improves people’s lives. Whether in urban, extra-urban, rural or fringe and remote areas, we help businesses, governments and communities fully participate in the digital world.

A Catalyst For Change

To really make a difference, Kacific looks beyond the limits of today’s practices, reacts quickly and adapts flexibly. We learn from successful technologies around the world and combine that with our innovative business model to find new ways of doing much more with much less – without compromising quality. And we invest in powerful satellites, focusing on broadband and broadband alone, so that customers don’t have to invest on the ground.

Accessible and Affordable

We understand the challenges that most ISPs, telecom operators, enterprises and governments in South East Asia and the Pacific region face in delivering connectivity to rural and extra-urban areas. Some may want to give up on these areas or see them as an unprofitable burden. We see them as a primary target market, because we understand the formidable, untapped opportunity of connecting their economies sustainably and profitably. We want to share that vision with telecommunication operators and governments to let them reap the attractive rewards of social and commercial inclusion of these areas.

Strong Partnerships

We believe true connectivity is the result of genuine, durable partnerships. We consult, advise, and work with our local partners to develop solutions that address emerging opportunities and provide increasingly more valuable services to their customers.
