Galaxy has been providing solutions to remote camps in the mining and oil & gas industries, focusing on morale, welfare and recreation services, for over 10 years. Whether service is required at a small exploration camp with a few workers or a large isolated semi-permanent camp of 1,000 workers, no job is too small or too large for Galaxy.
Broadband internet service is important for workers’ morale when on location at a remote camp. If workers do not have a stable and reliable connection they will become frustrated and have an unpleasant experience, which inevitably affects a company's productivity and efficiency. The internet is viewed by most users as a utility designed to work when they want it, like turning on a water tap.
There has been a large increase in the number of devices that are attempting to get online for entertainment and social activities. This has resulted in a higher demand for bandwidth amongst users in the camp. Bandwidth consumption must be managed properly to make sure each user has an equal opportunity and similar experience.

Why you need a Galaxy solution for your camp:
Offering Internet service to remote camps is becoming more of a necessity and a more difficult proposition. Due to the dramatic increase in the number of devices, looking for a stable connection for both office and MWR camp, operators are facing more and more complaints, along with increasing costs. Even if the camp has access to a good terrestrial service, network management is essential.
Galaxy’s proprietary SkyNET Management Unit (SMU) coupled with our 24 x 7 Managed Services allows camp operators to manage bandwidth consumption and costs on a per user basis while ensuring all users have an equal opportunity and similar experience. A predictable experience.
Camp operators can offer their employees a more predictable and reliable service to boost camp morale without compromising the service in the office and all within budgets.
