Yahsat and Tele10 enter MOU for connectivity in Rwanda, Burundi and East DRC

Yahsat and Tele10 have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at improving internet connectivity in Rwanda, Burundi and East Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The UAE-based satellite operator is due to launch its third satellite, Al Yah 3, which in turn will see the roll out of its cost-effective satellite broadband service YahClick to 19 new markets in Africa during the first half of 2017.

YahClick, delivered through a modem and small satellite dish, is currently the number one satellite broadband service in Africa, providing subscribers access to uninterrupted, high-speed internet anywhere in the coverage area with in-country technical, operational, and customer care services. As Yahsat works towards expanding its coverage area across the African continent, the company is in talks with local service providers to reinforce the presence of YahClick and strengthen its customer care.

Commenting on the MoU, David Murphy, Yahsat’s Chief Commercial Officer, said, “Our satellite technology connects individuals and businesses across Africa, regardless of the level of telecommunications infrastructure present in each country. We are dedicated to serving underserved and remote areas by providing better connectivity to new and existing internet users.”

Tele10 has been serving the East African region for 20 years, by providing diverse solutions including pay-TV, radio broadcasting, and ICT services. In 2017, the company will grow its portfolio to offer the YahClick broadband products, services and value-added solutions to its existing customer base as well as new customers. New markets will be served using the latest Ka-band technology, which is highly reliable in all weather conditions.
