iWayAfrica and Avanti improve download speeds across East Africa
iWayAfrica, a Pan-African broadband provider and Avanti Communications, a leading provider of satellite data communications services, has announced that consumer and business customers in Kenya can now benefit from increased downlink speeds to 15Mbps in a move that will improve their satellite connectivity.
Kenneth Munyi, Country Manager, iWayAfrica Kenya says the new offering is valid in Kenya and Tanzania for both existing and new service providers: “Providing increased value to customers is core to our service offering and the Avanti downlink speeds increase will greatly assist customers to become more productive and save time.”
iWayAfrica, in May 2016, announced its renewed contract with Avanti Communications, who appointed the Corporate Broadband Provider as a partner until 2018. Munyi says that the strong relationship between the two companies has enabled significant growth for iWayAfrica over the last 18 months. “The contract extension will enable provision of fast, affordable satellite broadband in an effort to assist in bridging the digital divide.”
Available from 1 June 2016, iWayAfrica expects the East African market to respond positively to the improved satellite connectivity. “Africa is the world’s second fastest economic growth region; and it is common knowledge that connectivity is crucial to its continued growth. By improving the technology implemented, we are working towards improved services overall within several sectors including healthcare, education and social services as examples,” says Munyi.
