This followed a pact with Avanti Communications Group, a leading satellite operator and provider of satellite data communications services in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Avanti has signed a HYLAS 4 Master Distributor contract with iWayAfrica that enables the latter to deliver service through the Ka-band satellite technology of Avanti’s HYLAS 4 satellite, which cover 100% of Sub-Saharan Africa, the companies said in a statement made available to Technology Times.

HYLAS 4, which launched in April 2018, will extend iWayAfrica’s Ka-band offering into new countries across West and Central Africa with commercial service scheduled from August 2018.  

“With HYLAS 4, we are excited to take Avanti’s high-speed service plans to West and Central Africa for the first time. This is a natural extension of our existing relationship and we are actively engaged with our partner network to bring these services online, as well as extending our reach in the region even further to new partners and new territories”, Mathew Welthagen, Group CEO of Gondwana International Networks, the parent company of iWayAfrica, says.
