AfricaOnline Ghana (iWayAfrica), a subsidiary of Gondwana International Networks (GIN) offering services to more than 67,000 corporate and over 20,000 consumer subscribers across sub-Saharan Africa, has launched a new satellite broadband service promising 100% coverage of the country through multiple spot beams. The ISP says its new Ka-Band JOLA-branded service will reach even the most remote parts of the interior of Ghana, but will also benefit business continuity services in urban areas as well. ‘We are proud to be the first to launch the Avanti HYLAS4 service in Ghana. Our rigorous testing over the past few months has given us the confidence that our customers will be very satisfied with the quality of service and speeds of up to 35Mbps download,’ said AfricaOnline (Ghana) managing director Foster Plender.
GIN has partnered with Avanti since 2014 for the rollout of high speed satellite services in Southern and Eastern Africa. In August 2018 the group was granted Master Distributor status for its new service on the latest satellite, HYLAS4, with new market focus on West and Central Africa.
