Gilat Satcom has announced new fibre and satellite services in Africa which will increase broadband availability, speeds and capacity for enterprises, fixed and mobile operators and service providers as well as NGOs and Governmental organisations.
The company is launching Aguila 3rd Generation, its redesigned and upgraded shared and optimised satellite services on both the C and Ku-band. The new Aguila service provides up to 100% more speed at peak hours when it’s most needed with no extra charges for the customer.
In addition, the firm is expanding its fibre capability to Nigeria. Gilat Satcom’s African HQ is in Lagos and it has branches in Abuja and Port Harcourt. It operates in Nigeria through both resellers and directly with large organisations.
Earlier in the year Gilat Satcom announced a host of new fibre routes in coastal and landlocked Africa. The firm is providing companies all across the continent with fast and reliable satellite and fibre connectivity at a highly competitive price.
Gilat Satcom is amongst the first companies in Africa to offer both East to West coast and international connectivity, enabling coast-to-coast redundancy. Its MPLS network connects to the WACS, EASSy and Seacom undersea cables via fibre local loops across Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi, Namibia and Mozambique – and now Nigeria.
Dan Zajicek, Gilat Satcom’s CEO, said “We continue to invest heavily in both our fibre and satellite operations throughout Africa. Our customers have access to fully-redundant extremely stable broadband networks with competitive pricing”.
