With new-generation services starting today in Benin, Cameroon, Kenya, Lesotho, Nigeria, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Uganda, Konnect Africa is confirming its bold ambitions for Sub-Saharan Africa.
“This initiative echoes a broad ambition. Connecting Africa means changing the way people live, study, perform business, and transforming daily life. We aim to take broadband further and closer to multiple development sectors such as the healthcare system, education, agriculture or SMEs,” explained Laurent Grimaldi, Konnect Africa Chief Executive Officer.
“We are proud to partner with prominent players and excited to embark on this truly unique venture,” he added.
The company’s innovative service offerings and products, included packaged offers inspired by pay as you go models and Wi-Fi hotspots schemes, have already convinced a number of local operators, telecom companies and resellers.
With products aligned with the preferences and habits of end-users, Konnect Africa is making a strong push with a double objective: to be a partner of choice on the continent and to demonstrate how satellite technology is today the most relevant solution for unlocking access to the Internet in Africa.
