CETel, a German provider of global satellite, fibre and wireless enabled communications solutions, upgrades its extended C-Band service for Africa to meet the increasing demand in the raw material extraction sector.
With more than 50MHz on Arabsat 5C extended, CETel delivers connectivity to rural areas in many African countries, especially Mali, Niger, Nigeria, DRC and South Africa.
CETel’s Managing Director Guido Neumann announced the upgrade by March 2017. He said: “CETel expands this customer network serving up to 200Mbps to critical and sensitive operations in the natural resources industry”, and further explained “the increased bandwidth demand is realized via a hub-based solution from our Teleport in Germany providing dedicated as well as shared services.”
Jointly, CETel and Arabsat deliver reliable and economic managed end-to-end services across Africa for the oil & gas, mining and construction sector.
