Will SatADSL work in my country?
SatADSL uses high-end technology and it works in the same way, regardless of the level of telecommunications infrastructure available in any African country. Such systems have already been very successful in Europe where there are already more than 100.000 satellite broadband subscribers using the same system. SatADSL services are delivered through the ASTRA-4A satellite operated by SES, the largest satellite operator in the world. SatADSL subscriptions in each country will be offered through highly reputable and experienced Partner-Distributors, all of whom are trained by SatADSL to operate the system effectively. The local Partner-Distributors will handle all customer enquiries, sales, installation and maintenance, billing and customer care.
What is the difference between SatADSL broadband service and other terrestrial broadband services?
SatADSL’s service uses satellite technology to provide cost-effective broadband Internet access to subscribers who cannot obtain high quality broadband Internet access by suitable terrestrial services in remote areas. Terrestrial broadband services provide the Internet via fibre, copper, cable and/or wireless. However, SatADSL is independent from terrestrial networks and is therefore ubiquitous and available in any single point in the footprint of the satellite, as well as much more reliable and not subject to service interruption as terrestrial services might be.
How much does SatADSL cost?
There are several components of the cost. These components are the cost of the equipment (satellite dish and modem), installation charges and monthly subscription charge plus applicable local taxes. Each service plan has a different price. Please contact SatADSL to be put in contact with a local Partner-Distributor to obtain relevant pricing in your country.
