African internet provider InterSAT has renewed its agreement with SES for capacity on the latter’s satellite.
SES’s NSS-12 satellite, located at 57 degrees East, will enable InterSat to securely and efficiently serve its government institutions and enterprises customers. The two companies first partnered in 2010, and during this time they have expanded reliable connectivity services across the African continent, reaching locations that have not previously had access to telecom services and thereby reducing the digital divide.
Hanif Kassam, CEO of InterSAT said: “Together with SES, we have helped empower entrepreneurs to grow, transform and digitise their businesses through development of smart and custom-made solutions throughout the continent. SES is a reliable partner to work with, and we can always count on their support to provide the best for our customers.”
“Our partnership with InterSAT has enabled us to pave the way for abundant digital opportunities across Africa by connecting the unconnected in some of the continent’s most underserved locations. The digital access our services provide is allowing innovative solutions such as smart agriculture and precision farming to address some of the continent’s biggest challenges,” said Caroline Kamaitha, Vice President Sales Africa at SES.
