Cape Town - Gilat Satcom, the leading provider of products and services for satellite-based broadband communications, has announced plans to expand its services in the country this week.
Officials at the company confirmed the development at the ongoing AfricaCom, the continent’s prime information and telecommunications event that is taking place in Cape Town, South Africa.
The company said during the event that ends on Thursday, it would announce the expansion of its fibre capability to Nigeria.
Gilat Satcom’s African headquarters are in Lagos.
In addition, the company has branches in Abuja and Port Harcourt.
It operates in Nigeria through both resellers and directly with large organisations.
“We continue to invest heavily in both our fibre and satellite operations throughout Africa. Our customers have access to fully-redundant extremely stable broadband networks with excellent QoS and competitive pricing,” Dan Zajicek, Gilat Satcom’s Chief Executive Officer, said ahead of the announcement.
Earlier in the year Gilat Satcom announced a host of new fibre routes in coastal and landlocked Africa. Gilat Satcom is providing companies all across the continent with fast and reliable satellite and fibre connectivity at a highly competitive price.
Gilat Satcom is amongst the first companies in Africa to offer both East to West coast and international connectivity, enabling coast-to-coast redundancy. Its MPLS network connects to the WACS, EASSy and Seacom undersea cables via fibre local loops across Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi, Namibia and Mozambique and lately Nigeria.
The company is also approaching oil and gas companies, mining, financial institutions and other large corporates that need high level security and low latency levels.
