Eutelsat Communications: Konnect Africa Launches Its Satellite Internet Access Offers in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Regulatory News:

Konnect Africa, an initiative of the satellite operator Eutelsat
(Paris:ETL) dedicated to satellite broadband on the African continent,
announces the launch today of its Internet access offers throughout the
Congolese territory.

Internet offers from 5 GB to unlimited data plans

The ICT Development Index published annually by the International
Telecommunication Union to date shows that less than 3% of Congolese
households have Internet access. According to the ITU, less than 1% of
the Congolese population currently have access to the Internet via
terrestrial networks. The lack of connectivity is a major obstacle to
the economic development of this country.

By relying on the latest satellite technology, Konnect Africa is now
providing a concrete response to the digital divide by launching a range
of eight Internet access offers for individuals and businesses.
Accessible at affordable prices, these subscription offers are suitable
for all consumer profiles, offering packages of up to 5 GB of data, and
which can be unlimited for professionals. These packages are being
proposed as prepaid in order to meet the needs of the market. The
broadband speeds offered will be up to 20 Mbit/s download and up to 3
Mbit/s upload. For the launch, Konnect Africa is also introducing a
promotion on this new range.

Leading local partnerships

By working hand in hand with a large network of local partners
specialised in various fields ranging from the distribution of telecom
and television services to financial services, Konnect Africa has
ensured that it has covered the Congolese territory as widely as
possible. These Internet access offers are now available in six major
cities of the Democratic Republic of Congo through a network of eight
resellers1 totalling nearly 500 stores and retail points.
