Eutelsat has struck a multi-year agreement with sub-Saharan Africa’s Liquid Telecom.
The capacity deal will take extra bandwidth on Eutelsat 7B craft at 7 degrees East orbital position. The extra capacity allows Liquid Telekom to extend its existing VSAT services, and, according to a joint press release, “reach even the most remote corners of the region”.
Philippe Oliva, CCO at Eutelsat, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to take the partnership between Liquid Telecom and Eutelsat to the next level. By working together to further strengthen our ties, we can ensure that the combination of Eutelsat’s satellite coverages of Sub-Saharan Africa and Liquid Telecom’s unrivalled expertise in the VSAT market can deliver the highest possible service levels to Liquid’s customers throughout the continent”.
Scott Mumford, CEO of Liquid Telecom Satellite Services added: “We are delighted to renew and expand our agreements with Eutelsat, ensuring we can continue to rely on its support and coverage to deliver high-speed, reliable connectivity to existing and future customers, no matter where they are located.”
