Yahsat, is gearing to launch its YahClick satellite service in South Sudan over the coming months. The Abu Dhabi-based operator has selected local ISP RCS-Communication as their service partner for South Sudan reportedly based on RCS-Communication’s in-country experience.

Commenting on the upcoming launch, Tareq Abdul Raheem Al Hosani, Yahsat CEO, stated:

“As the world’s youngest country, South Sudan is facing multiple infrastructure building priorities. YahClick brings internet connectivity instantly to the population, irrespective of the state of the local telecommunications infrastructure that is within their reach. YahClick therefore fast tracks connectivity to this young country beyond what is humanly possible with the time and expense it takes to expand fixed or wireless internet solutions.

Flippie Odendal, RCS-Communication, Republic of South Sudan, Managing Director stated:

“Based on anticipated growth we will be adding and training VSAT technicians and support staff (with a focus on South Sudanese candidates) to our existing team. Parallel to this process we will be running extensive tests of the new service and processes over the next months to ensure all aspects are working well before the service is made available to clients.”
