SES World Skies has announced that Netcom Africa has signed a multi-year deal to expand its delivery of telecom and broadcast television services throughout Nigeria and West Africa.
Under the latest in a series of agreements between the two companies, Netcom will augment its existing capacity utilizing multi transponders on Ku-band; this will enable Netcom to meet rising demand for its broad range of telecom and broadcast television services among businesses, universities and consumers in cities and towns across the West African nation of Nigeria and beyond.
“We have depended on the reliability and reach of SES World Skies for years to interconnect our global teleports in Nigeria, London and the U.S. and offer our diverse customer base the best worldwide network access possible,” said Yen Choi, group executive VP and CTO for Netcom Africa, in a statement.
“Netcom is using this latest layer of satellite capacity from SES WORLD SKIES to serve a broad range of exciting applications across Nigeria and West Africa,” Choi explained. “From high-speed IP backbone connections for a leading mobile phone company to dedicated broadband for schools and travel agencies and a TV station’s DVB broadcast across the continent, SES WORLD SKIES is enabling Netcom to meet the tremendous regional demand for connectivity and content.”
