INTELSAT, world’s largest integrated satellite and terrestrial network, has just announced a joint venture with leading African telecom group Liquid Telecom. The two companies have collaborated for over four years to deliver Liquid Telecom’s very-small-aperture terminal (VSAT) service over Intelsat’s satellite feed, by providing robust and reliable communications network to communities, schools and business in almost 20 African countries.
‘Extending our partnership with Intelsat will enable us to continue developing VSAT products with high- efficiency models and ubiquitous coverage; in fact, Liquid Telecom has just added three new high-performance VSAT service offerings to our portfolio, each with a range of data volume options. Liquid Telecom is continuing to drive increased demand and improve service levels across the continent, and this continuation of our partnership with Intelsat is a significant boost in that regard,’ said Liquid Telecom Satellite Services CEO Scott Mumford.
‘We are pleased to extend our longstanding partnership with Liquid Telecom, helping to connect more people, communities and businesses throughout the continent,’ said Intelsat Regional Vice President of Africa Brian Jakins. ‘Working together, we’re enabling critical educational opportunities, local business growth and game-changing consumer finance solutions to reach increasing numbers of people.’
