SES Broadband

Global satellite operator, SES, has announced that it is launching SES Broadband, a flexible and customised high-speed broadband service in Kenya, and four other African countries; South Africa, Ethiopia, Ghana and Nigeria.

The two-way communications platform, announced during AfricaCom, will offer up to 1 Gbps for both customisable data rates and fixed packages, with more than 99.5% service availability, supported 24/7 by a highly-responsive operations team.

“The socio-economic impact of broadband access in empowering people has been proven and is growing. Our new platforms simplify the process of getting connected without limiting the experience. High-speed broadband is attainable over our platforms, and customers can be ensured of a high quality of service, an enhanced application experience and the responsiveness that is expected.

“In anticipation of customer demand for faster broadband connectivity in the next few years, SES will continue to invest in platform innovation to adopt new and more efficient technologies that can work seamlessly with next-generation high-throughput satellite architecture.”
