Abu Dhabi based satellite operator, Yahsat has today expended its flagship satellite broadband Internet service YahClick in the Republic of South Sudan and Angola in a move set to increase access to high speed and reliable internet in the two Africa countries.
The service is already enjoyed by consumers and enterprises in more than 10 countries including Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan, South Africa and East Africa.
Yahsat has partnered with SSCOOP SS Cooperative “SCOOP” in South Sudan. The high speed internet service via satellite will be available through SCOOP to businesses, government, communities, and home users, increasing access to instant high speed and reliable Internet connectivity in this young nation.
Yahsat has partnered with Global Telesat in the republic of Angola to distribute YahClick across the country via two main distribution channels, namely Electrix to target home users and Multitel to targeting businesses.
Global Telesat will offer cost effective YahClick service plans to suit both home and business users in urban, rural and remote locations to boost their access to a high speed and reliable Internet connection.
In the two countries, YahClick satellite broadband Internet will be supplied to individuals, SME’s, NGOs, government, educational organisations and home users throughout its coverage area by providing reliable, high-bandwidth Internet connectivity to urban, rural and even remote communities.
YahClick is beamed via Y1B, Yahsat’s second satellite that is the first Ka band service for Africa. The introduction of Ka band allows higher bandwidth communication by providing a 2-3 GHz increase in bandwidth, double the bandwidth available in Ku band and five times more than C band.
