In October 2019 the Falkland Islands TV channel published a report on the proposed December 2019 FIG-financed doubling of satellite capacity to 400Mbit/s.

This is that report by FITV’s reporter, Tom Stockting.


Full details of this increase can be found in the Falkland Islands Government Executive Council (EXCO) paper 133/19P: Broadband Provision

I would like to thank FITV for permission to publish this report on OpenFalklands.

p.s. I will be visiting the islands again between November 14th and December 3rd. If anyone would like to meet with me while I’m there, please email on
