August 13, 2019
Intelsat has announced an agreement with Stratosat Datacom that provides for the delivery of high-speed broadband services to sites across Central Africa by integrating managed connectivity from Intelsat’s high throughput global network with valued-added engineering and management services from Stratosat.
Together, the companies will bring internet and Virtual Private Networking (VPN) connectivity to markets across the region that have traditionally lacked access to reliable communications capabilities.
“Because connectivity is essential to supporting the growth of local and regional economies, Intelsat is committed to making broadband connectivity more attainable for businesses, communities, and individuals across Africa,” said Brian Jakins, Intelsat’s Regional Vice President, Africa. “Stratosat is the first of Intelsat’s FlexEnterprise partners to focus on expanding broadband connectivity in the Central African region.”
“Stratosat Datacom is pleased to partner up with Intelsat to bring unique connectivity to the Central Region in Africa. We are highly committed to empower local service providers to offer cost-effective broadband solutions to end-users,” said Dieter Kovar, Schauenburg International – Africa Group CEO.
