YahClick (powered by Hughes) has partnered with Phase3 Telecom, one of Africa’s leading independent aerial fibre optic network infrastructure and telecommunications service providers, to offer world-class high-speed, low-latency satellite internet services in Nigeria, with a focus on unserved and underserved communities.
This strategic collaboration will utilise Phase3 Telecom’s extensive aerial fibre network and YahClick’s satellite capabilities to avail internet services to Nigerian residential and business users through its subsidiary, P3Tech.
“Our satellite broadband services will provide tangible benefits in accessibility, service, cost and socio-economic development to the unserved and underserved homes and businesses in the area, unlocking all the opportunities that reliable, cost-effective satellite broadband products afford,” says Muhammed Bashir, Vice President, Digital Transformation and Innovation, P3Tech, a division of Phase 3 Telecom.
With this agreement, Phase3 Telecom can bypass infrastructure deployment challenges to enable populations in the most remote areas to participate in the global digital economy.
According to Stanley Jegede, Executive Chairman, Phase3, the partnership will provide a truly extensive satellite coverage service with a range of product options, further transforming the Nigerian telecommunications space, accelerating national growth and positively contributing to the Federal Government broadband access target of 70% broadband penetration and 90% population coverage by 2025.
