The emergency remains strong especially in some regions of the Center-South and the small and medium-sized models are the most "popular". How do you defend yourself? With satellite technology, the only one capable of fighting increasingly fierce and unscrupulous gangs. These are the main “highlights” that emerge from Viasat's research.
