Satellite company Thuraya has signed a service provision agreement with reseller SatCom to promote and distribute its satellite services in Zambia.

Under the agreement, SatCom, a UK-based firm, will distribute the entire range of Thuraya products and services across Zambia, a country that is still lacking mobile and fixed line coverage in many areas.

"From initial market response, Thuraya services are expected to be of great demand by the large agricultural, mining and tourism sectors as well as to the corporate and mass market throughout Zambia," Thuraya CEO Yousuf Al Sayed said.

SatCom will also promote Thuraya's AfricaTalk tariff plan, a special package customised for African communities, in the southern African country, which has a population of nine million.

Thuraya, which is 34% owned by UAE telecom service provider Etisalat, dramatically expanded its African operations last year, opening offices in Kenya and Angola.
