Brussels-based satellite service provider, SatADSL has partnered with YahClick to enhance its connectivity offering across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Through the partnership SatADSL is now a new Virtual Network Operator (VNO) partner to YahClick, a UAE-based broadband satellite services provider owned by Yahsat and its partner Hughes Network Systems.

As a result, SatADSL is able to combine the capacity purchased from YahClick with its cloud-based service delivery platform (C-SDP) to deliver a full range of flexible satellite services across Africa.

“Working closely with SatADSL enhances the quality of our service delivery as we continue on our mission to unleash human potential through satellite broadband connectivity,” said Farhad Khan, chief executive officer at YahClick.

“The agreement will provide our customers with the best broadband solutions available, connecting them with the rest of the world through a fast and affordable service. In this uncertain period of enforced social distancing and self-isolation, we are delighted to help bring people together, supporting them to work, learn, and stay informed remotely.”

For YahClick’s part, it gains full access to the SatADSL’s licensed partner network spanning 45 countries worldwide and boasting over 3,500 deployments, which gives YahClick opportunities to expand its distribution.

“I am excited by the possibilities that present themselves ahead. Partnering with YahClick does more than just give us access to the company’s service delivery platforms – it significantly increases our ability to make a tangible and lasting difference in and across the communities from West to East Africa we serve as part of our global connectivity offering.

“Our ability to offer high throughput Ka-band services will significantly impact the fate of some of the most underserved countries in the world, helping them to cross the digital divide and make the most of their considerable potential,” said Michel Dothey, chief commercial officer at SatADSL.
