iSAT Africa and OneWeb Partnership Announcement
OneWeb, the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite communications company, and iSAT Africa LTD, an integrated communications service, today announced they have signed a Distribution Partnership Agreement (DPA) to bring high-speed, low-latency broadband connectivity across East and West Africa.
The partnership brings together the innovative satellite technology of OneWeb, and iSAT Africa’s extensive experience accumulated over 15 years in expanding innovative solutions and resilient network across industries. OneWeb’s LEO satellites will provide consistent connectivity, empowering iSAT Africa to offer increased broadband services to the government and commercial sectors, including education, telecoms, and mining. As a leading and trusted internet services provider, iSAT Africa will work closely with OneWeb to deliver reliable, high-speed, low latency broadband connectivity throughout Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, DRC, Cameroon, Nigeria, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Having recently completed its global constellation, under this DPA, OneWeb will continue to facilitate global connectivity, reaching areas that had previously been underserved and too remote for reliable connectivity. iSAT Africa joins network of global OneWeb partners looking to offer connectivity for all. Neil Masterson, CEO of OneWeb commented: “This new partnership presents us with the opportunity to bring connectivity to people, businesses and governments across Africa. iSAT has laid the groundwork in getting many people online, and we are well positioned to expand their network and offer by deploying our fast and reliable satellite powered connectivity through their network.” Rakesh Kukreja, CEO and MD of iSAT Africa, said we are thrilled to partner with OneWeb to bring reliable and high-speed broadband connections to underserved areas in Africa. This partnership is a big step towards closing the digital divide and giving people and businesses all over Africa more power. With OneWeb's cutting-edge LEO satellite technology and iSAT Africa's expertise in integrated communications services, we are well-equipped to be the first to offer innovative solutions that meet the specific needs of our customers in Africa and beyond."
