Today, Intersat launched a new UNLIMITED Ka-Band Broadband Service on the Avanti HYLAS 2 Satellite to complement their existing VSAT solutions.

The service will offer reliable high throughput broadband to help grow small, medium and large enterprises throughout Kenya, Tanzania and Burundi. With speeds up to 20 Mbps, and 100% coverage, no business needs to be disadvantaged by slow connectivity.

The service officially launched at this year’s IBC show in Amsterdam from 14th to 18th September. IBC is the premier annual event for professionals engaged in the creation, management and delivery of entertainment and news content worldwide.

Subrata Roy, Chief Technical Officer of Intersat Ltd commented: ‘ We are committed to connecting businesses across East Africa with high-speed broadband. Avanti’s flexible Ka-band satellite technology enables us to provide customers with high speed and quality broadband which other bands may not deliver, breaking our customers’ communication boundaries.

David Caleb, East Africa Sales Director for Avanti, said:

We are delighted to be working with Intersat on the delivery of affordable broadband that will help liberate the potential of businesses both small and large throughout East Africa”.
