The local government in Thailand has launched several initiatives, including a National Broadband Policy. A new economic model ‘Thailand 4.0‘ has emerged with goals to increase broadband penetration to 95% of the Thai Population by 2020 and to transform the country into an innovation-driven economy.
However, despite these policy gains, only 12% or about 8.3 million of the country’s 69 million population currently has access to broadband, according to the country’s telecom industry database.
Mu Space was founded in September 2017 by a 33-year old space enthusiast and entrepreneur, James Yenbamroong.

This will help to transform Thailand’s communities and give a greater percentage of access to broadband, strengthening the connection, the ecosystem, and society as a whole.
In the Next Five Years (2018-2022) for the following five years, the company will launch a communication satellite for Asia-Pacific and Africa, support Thailand to develop the country’s Digital Park and develop a space travel program for Asia-Pacific with the support of local and foreign manufacturers with relevant technological agencies.
