Intelsat, operator of the world´s largest integrated satellite and terrestrial network, has announced an extension of its partnership with Liquid Telecom the pan-African telecoms group, the company said.
The two companies have collaborated for four years to deliver Liquid Telecom´s multi-award-winning very-small-aperture terminal (VSAT) service over Intelsat´s high-throughput satellite fleet, providing a robust, secure and reliable communications network to communities, schools and businesses in 20 countries across the continent.
Through the partnership extension, Liquid Telecom will be able to connect more than 2,000 additional VSAT terminals across the continent. This will ensure the continuity of high-speed, reliable satellite connectivity to mobile operators, carriers, enterprise, media, content companies and retail customers across Africa, and it will also help Liquid Telecom better serve the growing demand for improved connectivity in its rural service areas.
Intelsat and Liquid Telecom have collaborated since 2016 to bring broadband and other critical communications services to people throughout Eastern, Central and Southern Africa. Intelsat has been an integral part of Africa´s communications fabric since 1965; it was the first operator to introduce satellite services on the continent, sparking the growth of critical communications infrastructure.
As the foundational architects of satellite technology, Intelsat operates the world´s largest and most advanced satellite fleet and connectivity infrastructure. Learn more at Intelsat.com.
