The Luanda SNP will be providing high-speed internet access, particularly in underserved areas and fostering socio-economic development.

Eutelsat OneWeb has announced the launch of a new Satellite Network Portal (SNP) in Luanda, Angola, aimed at enhancing its low Earth orbit (LEO) network. The ground station, endorsed by Minister Mario Olivera and Joaquim Muhongo, Chairman of INACOM (Instituto Angolano das Comunicações), is expected to significantly improve connectivity across Angola and the broader African continent.

Satellite Network Portals are essential for enabling seamless data transmission from satellites to users on Earth. The Luanda SNP will play a pivotal role in providing high-speed internet access, especially in underserved areas, thereby promoting socio-economic development.

The state-of-the-art facility will significantly enhance connectivity, optimise data transmission, and offer profound benefits to both metropolitan and rural areas throughout the African continent. We are honoured to commemorate this milestone and look forward to an innovative future.”

This new portal is part of Eutelsat OneWeb’s commitment to advancing global connectivity and bridging the digital divide. The Luanda SNP represents a major leap forward in bringing innovative satellite communication solutions to the region.
