about us

FChorizon is a provider of Internet services over satellite as well as terrestrial fibre optic systems. Our 'telecommunication infrastructure' is dedicated to the provision of Internet services over satellite from gateways in Europe and the USA.

In addition to Internet over satellite services FChorizon is engaged in the development of a regional tellurian fiber optic system linked to the global system connecting the Large ISPs and destinations in the Europe.

At Future Communications Horizon (FCH), we understand the challenges that customers are faced with every day. One of them being the Local Incumbent Telecommunications Company (LITC) which most often has the monopoly in most countries, resulting in lack of timely service delivery. Furthermore, these companies are immense with vast out-dated infrastructure which are not suited for the new generation of services and applications. To remedy these shortcomings, FCH designs and implements wireless technology. We are experienced and offer wireless solutions for High Speed Internet Access, Wireless WAN, Wireless LAN (WLAN) and Satellite-based solutions. This technology bypasses the LITCs and ISPs and enables companies to offer services such as Voice Over IP (VoIP) and Live Broadcasts over Internet.

Satellite Geographic Area of Service Deployment

Service is provided to our customers using single satellite hops from the customer terminal on his roof to our gateway via multi-STM-1 resilient fiber interconnection to the tier-one Internet provider.


Internet Service Coverage

FChorizon's service footprint extends over Middle East, Iraq, Iran, Eastern Europe, the Balkans and the former CIS States including Ukraine, Russia, Moldavia, the Baltic States, Georgia, Belarus, Azerbaijan as well as destinations in the Mediterranean basin, East Asia and Africa.
