SatADSL, a provider of VSAT services and state-owned fixed line incumbent CamTel have announced a new partnership to provide satellite connectivity across Cameroon. The formal agreement follows a pilot launch of SatADSL’s range of satellite solutions across a variety of public and private enterprises and communities in Cameroon, including schools, post offices, hospitals and banks. SatADSL now plans to integrate and deploy its VSAT services across the central African country, enabling CamTel to offer competitive broadband packages to even the most rural areas. The platform allows operators to outsource satellite services, reducing the cost of providing ubiquitous connectivity by enabling fast, flexible and future-proof satellite connectivity via the cloud, eliminating the need for physical infrastructure.
‘We chose to partner with SatADSL because its solutions will enable us to target the widest possible spectrum of end-users, meaning the broadband services will truly benefit entire communities,’ said David Nkoto Emane, CEOat CamTel, adding: ‘SatADSL’s knowledge of the region and technical expertise played a big role in the pilot’s success and we look forward to extending the project.’ – TeleGeography
