RCS partners iWayAfrica and Avanti for new satellite service launch

15 Nov 2018

South Sudanese ISP RCS-Communication has established the first site for Avanti’s HYLAS 4 high-speed satellite broadband service in-country. Following successful beam testing in early November 2018 in the capital Juba, South Sudan, the new Ka-Band service is now available to RCS-Communication’s customers in South Sudan, offering speeds of up to 35Mbps download and 4Mbps upload.

RCS-Communication partnered with iWayAfrica to bring the service to South Sudan. ‘We have a long-standing relationship of almost ten years with iWayAfrica for the provision of high throughput volume capped VSAT services and are pleased to extend this to the new HYLAS 4 service that offers much improved speeds,’ said Flippie Odendal, Managing Director at RCS-Communication.
