PHYLLIS BIRORI in Kigali, Rwanda
KIGALI, (CAJ News) – YAHSAT, the United Arab Emirates-based operator, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tele10 Group, the regional broadcast and internet service provider, to discuss collaborations for improving internet connectivity in some countries.
Rwanda, Burundi and Democratic Republic of the Congo will benefit from the MoU, which comes ahead of Yahsat taking delivery of its third satellite, Al Yah.
The launch of Yahsat’s upcoming satellite will see the roll out of YahClick, the company’s cost-effective satellite broadband service, to 19 new markets in Africa during the first half of 2017.
YahClick, delivered through a modem and small satellite dish, is currently the number one satellite broadband service in Africa, providing subscribers access to uninterrupted, high-speed internet anywhere in the coverage area with in-country technical, operational, and customer care services.
“Our cutting edge satellite technology connects individuals and businesses across Africa, regardless of the level of telecommunications infrastructure present in each country,” said David Murphy, Yahsat’s Chief Commercial Officer.
Tele10 has been serving the East African region for 20 years, by providing diverse solutions including pay-TV, radio broadcasting, and ICT services.
In 2017, the company will grow its portfolio to offer the YahClick broadband products, services and value-added solutions to its existing customer base as well as new customers.
New markets will be served using the latest Ka-band technology.
