Yahsat expands YahClick service in Angola
Abu Dhabi satellite service provider signs up Global Telesat for availability enhancement
Abu Dhabi-based satellite operator Al Yah Satellite Communications Company (Yahsat) has announced an enhancement of its flagship service, YahClick, in the Republic of Angola.
Yahsat said the high-speed satellite broadband Internet service would benefit from increased availability, through a new partnership with Angola-based satellite telecoms provider Global Telesat.
Global Telesat will now distribute YahClick across the country via two main distribution channels: Electrix, which will target home users and Multitel for business subscribers. Coverage will include urban, rural and remote locations.
"We are happy to strengthen our presence in Angola through our partnership with Global Telesat," said Shawkat Ahmed, chief commercial officer, Yahsat.
"Africa is a key market for us and with the help of experts in the market like Global Telesat, Yahsat is pleased to be making cost-effective and reliable Internet connectivity even more accessible to users across Angola."
"YahClick is a powerful tool, one which will improve the life of business and home users requiring high speed and reliable Internet access," added Ivan Pizarro, chief executive officer, Global Telesat.
"While satellite services have existed in Angola for many years, YahClick makes satellite Internet affordable for the very first time, for a much wider segment of businesses and home users who previously couldn't consider satellite due to its prohibitive costs."
