Yaclick Partners with iSAT Africa to Expand Broadband Solutions in Africa

YahClick, a subsidiary of Al Yahsat Satellite Communications Company, has signed a partnership with iSAT Africa Ltd FZC to expand its satellite broadband solutions in Nigeria, Zambia, the DRC and East Africa. 

Furthermore, with the new partnership, iSAT Africa will deliver connectivity solutions for Mobile Cellular Backhaul (CBH) services, business applications, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, and connectivity to remote sites, including mines. Consequently, these solutions will be provided using YahClick’s high-throughput satellite (HTS) Ka-band capacity to deliver high-speed broadband solutions, with service plans of up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps), reaching and serving remote areas.  

Farhad Khan, YahClick CEO, remarked, “This partnership with iSAT Africa is another step in our plans for further growth and expansion across Africa.  With our existing strong presence in these countries, our partnership with iSAT Africa will enhance our reach into the unserved and underserved markets. We look forward to enabling greater connectivity for people and businesses across Africa during the upcoming months.” 

Additionally, this agreement highlights Yahsat’s commitment to providing connectivity solutions in several African markets. Experts expect the revenues from fixed satellite data services in Africa to grow at an average of 15.8% per year between 2020 and 2029. 

Managing Director of iSAT Africa, Rakesh Kukreja, added, “The new partnership with YahClick will bring a significant improvement in services to our customers in these markets with business operations in remote areas. iSAT Africa will equip them with advanced and dependable technical capabilities. In addition, rural cellular backhaul will enhance the connectivity proposition for the major Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in these countries, thus bringing connectivity to the unconnected, and bridging the digital divide in Africa.”
