Globecomm, Avanti extend coverage to South Africa

Collaboration to provide businesses with connectivity on Hylas 2 satellite

Globecomm Systems has extended its contract with Avanti to deploy satellite broadband services to businesses in South Africa.

Operating from Cape Town and Johannesburg, the service provider will deploy Ka-band satellite connectivity to enterprise customers in South Africa via Avanti’s Hylas 2 satellite. The partnership will be based on the Hughes platform and will extend beyond South Africa later this year.

“Avanti’s service has always proven to be reliable and high-quality, even when faced with adverse conditions such as torrential weather. As advocates of Ka-band satellite for some time, we are very pleased to be extending broadband reach into South Africa through our latest partnership,” says Harry Tayler, Managing Director at Globecomm South Africa.
