About Roger Hammond Boddy
Roger Boddy has been involved in the satellite industry since its inception in the sixties. He is a fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology and has held senior representative roles at board level in the public and private sectors of his challenging industry. He set up Global Teleports from scratch in 1998 and has developed it to be a major player in the delivery of IP based telecommunications service to a global audience. An active member of OFCOM’s satellite consultative Committee, Roger is engaged in the analysis of the commercial and environmental impact of the launch of huge constellations of small satellites that promised to deliver superfast broadband services to a global audience and through his work with the Engineering Mathematics Science & Technology Association (“EMSTA”) is a major promoter of STEM based careers for young people.
The UK is falling behind in the delivery of Broadband services. There have been many false claims for the speeds achievable and the Government has now clamped down the way these services may be advertised. Whilst the focus for speed has been on fibre, the most common terrestrial access still uses copper wires but this slows transmission speed over distance. Satellite to the home and community provides a stable, compliant and affordable service that is available NOW.
