JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – SUB-Saharan Africa (SSA) areas with limited connectivity options on alternative technologies are set to benefit from a Pan-African Ku-Band managed retail satellite service into the region.
Pan-African telecommunication provider, iWayAfrica, a wholly owned division of Gondwana International Networks, has launched the satellite, called Jola.
Jola translates to, “bring happiness.”
With pre-defined, branded packages available throughout its retail channel, Jola is envisaged to offer households and business users affordable broadband internet connectivity.
“Jola is an exciting product for both small businesses and households. The pricing is lower than any existing Ku-Band satellite services. We are offering users true flexibility to select a monthly data allowance and speed that suits their needs,” says Ali Bofulo, General Manager, iWayAfrica.
He says Africa remains in dire need of affordable broadband services.
Jola is sold via Authorised Partners including all iWayAfrica and AfricaOnline networks, as well as iWayAfrica’s channel partner network with a combined reach into 44 markets in Sub-Saharan Africa.
