Monday 16 April, Nairobi, Kenya: Yahsat, a satellite communications company offering multipurpose (Government and Commercial) broadband satellite services in Africa, Middle East and South West Asia, will be showcasing its latest offerings at this year’s East Africa Com Exhibition.
Running from 17- 18 of April and held at Safari Park Hotel, Nairobi, the East Africa Com Exhibition aims to give delegates an overview of all the latest “need to know” topics on the world’s foremost technology and solution providers.
Exhibiting at stand no: 6, 7, 8 from 9am-5.30pm on both days, representatives from Yahsat will be on hand to discuss YahClick; its latest offering and solution to receiving satellite broadband in underserved areas. Proven to be more affordable, widely accessible and with a minimal set up process than its competitors YahClick will be operational later this year once Yahsat’s Y1B satellite is launched from Kazakhstan later this month.
Representing Yahsat at the East Africa Com Expo, Shawkat Ahmed, Chief Commercial Officer said: “East Africa Com is a great platform for organizations like Yahsat to showcase groundbreaking technological inventions.
“Our “YahClick” offering is the end service product through which customers will receive their broadband service transmitted through the Y1B satellite. Its core advantage over any other satellite broadband service is that it provides connectivity to remote and underserved areas, bringing affordable, high bandwidth and easily accessible broadband services which take minimal time to set up to its markets.
“We are working closely with key African Telco providers to ensure the successful roll out of “YahClick” across the region. In Kenya and Uganda, we are working with Simbanet, whilst in Tanzania we are working jointly with Simbanet and Raha. These are reputable companies that understand the local market and can effectively install and support the “YahClick” service for customers.
“On behalf of Yahsat we are extremely proud to be part of this year’s East Africa Com Expo and look forward to sharing news and updates of our new offerings with our peers and delegates.”
Yahsat’s YIB satellite will be launched on 24th April this year. It will provide South Africa and 27 other countries with Satellite broadband services through the “YahClick” offering.
