IS Internet Solutions and Konnect Africa have joined forces to give Ghanaians satellite broadband services. With internet connectivity prices going up every day, this new partnership may be a solution.
Customers will have a blend of Konnect Africa’s state-of-the-art satellite technology and IS’ customer support and service delivery expertise. The two companies are going to provide better broadband connectivity to urban, rural areas in Ghana. Also, the most remote locations in Ghana won’t be left out.
They are going to serve private users, businesses and the public sector as well. This collaboration implies customers will gain access to quality high-speed broadband at affordable prices.
IS Internet Solutions’ Regional Managing Director, Mrs. Yvette Atekpe, commented on the new partnership. She said: “We are very pleased to be working with Konnect Africa, which is a solid broadband platform across Sub-Saharan Africa. Demand for universal and affordable access to the internet is very high from our customers, and we are constantly looking for the best technology to meet their needs and requirements for reliability. Satellite broadband is the way of the future and we aim to work with trustworthy partners such as Konnect Africa.”
Jean-Claude Tshipama, Chief Executive Officer of Konnect Africa, also had something to say. He noted: “We are delighted to initiate this partnership with IS Internet Solutions in Ghana. Our vision is to enable universal coverage for all populations in Ghana and Africa so that they can leverage the full potential of digital connectivity – to access information, grow businesses and boost economic development.”
IS Internet Solutions is also looking to use Konnect Africa’s commitment to create new jobs in the region. The company will hire and train installers. The companies will provide the installers with specific training.
The two companies will also encourage installers to improve quality of services and motivation, by way of rewarding them.
Konnect Africa’s aim is to use broad satellite as a key technology to distribute connectivity in all Africa.
