K-NET enhances satellite offering

06 February 2013 |


African telco K-NET has announced the successful transition of its satellite-based services to a new higher powered digital communications satellite

The SES operated Astra 2F, launched in September 2012, provides the new connection to K-NET’s teleport, located in Accra, Ghana. 

It replaces the Astra 2B satellite launched in 2000. The new satellite has enabled K-NET to launch digital TV services and a range of broadband internet packages for businesses and consumers in 16 west and central African countries. 

K-NET’s satellite broadband speeds now range from 1Mbps to 8Mbps depending on the price of the package.
