When and how satellite broadband makes sense

Satellite technology literally comes ‘from above’, and is independent from terrestrial infrastructure - unlike fibre, ADSL or mobile wireless technologies. Satellite broadband is available everywhere and makes even more sense in remote areas that other technologies cannot reach.

Unreliable and intermittent connectivity has a negative impact on users – it provides uncertainty and can be a major burden resulting in the slowing down of economic activity on a regular basis in many regions, even in peri-urban areas. This is why gaining access to reliable internet is so important.

Konnect Africa services can be used at home, at the office, in the school or at the local healthcare centre, or even power community points of access such as Wi-Fi hotspots.
