Globecomm Systems, the US-based global provider of end-to-end satellite-based communications solutions, has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Globecomm Network Services Corporation (GNSC) has been awarded service contract extensions by Afghan Telecom worth USD2.1 million.

Afghan Telecom is the principal fixed line operator in Afghanistan, with coverage of 144 cities, towns and districts. The company’s District Communications Network (DCN) and Government Communication Network (GCN), which together give it a national footprint, were designed, installed and maintained by Globecomm. GNSC has been providing teleport services, in support of international voice and internet connectivity, to Afghan Telecom since the DCN and GCN went live.
