With ‘Konnect Africa’, Eutelsat wants to boost broadband

Eutelsat has launched the Konnect Africa brand for its ‘Broadband for Africa’ venture set up to deliver satellite broadband services in sub-Saharan Africa.

The brand and new slogan, ‘Taking Broadband Further’, have been devised to reflect Eutelsat’s ambition to accelerate satellite broadband connectivity across the African continent.

With a 20 strong team located in key African markets and in Europe, Konnect Africa aims to become one of the leading suppliers of new-generation services, working closely  with African partners to promote high-quality broadband at affordable prices for homes and businesses, and contributing to reducing the digital divide on the continent, according to Eutelsat.

Eutelsat declares that the new brand is a new milestone in advance of the launch of commercial services that will start to roll-out in 2017, ramping up to cover more than 20 Sub-Saharan countries by 2019.

Konnect Africa’s portfolio of services will be adjusted to the profiles and needs of its partners, to match their position in the value chain: data, mobile or VSAT operators, ISPs and pay-TV platforms that can bundle TV with Internet services, the company confirms.

Also, it says that Konnect Africa will offer a complete range of services, from bandwidth supply to end-to-end solutions.
