We were fascinated to see the role satellites play in our everyday lives- everything from online communication to discount voucher shopping.
Bath (PRWEB UK) 15 February 2012
An infographic recently commissioned has shown Luxembourg to be the surprise forerunner in communication satellites, almost doubling the number of second-place USA.
‘The results show the success Luxembourg made from switching from the steel industry to various pioneering sectors in the 1980s,’ explains Alex Attinger, CEO of AJInteractive who commissioned the infographic. ‘We were fascinated to see the role satellites play in our everyday lives- everything from online communication to discount voucher shopping.’
This surprise dominance by Luxembourg can also be explained by the presence of Intelsat and SES, two of the planet’s biggest satellite communications companies, both based in the small north-western European nation. Their ranges independently reach 99% of the world’s population.
The infographic also provides information on the launch of communication satellites, and the cooperation of international bodies maintaining them. The results visibly show the rapid assertion of communication satellites becoming part of everyday life.
This infographic was commissioned by AJInteractive.
