Africa is a continent that is experiencing strong economic and demographic growth, but which still suffers from a lack of telecommunications infrastructure. According to the World Bank, only 28% of Africans have internet access, compared to 87% in developed countries. This digital divide limits the development potential of the continent, depriving its inhabitants of essential services such as education, health, trade or governance.
To reduce this digital divide, AFRIKANET offers innovative solutions for Internet access by satellite, adapted to the needs and budgets of each client. AFRIKANET is a pioneering company in the field of satellite internet in Africa, which has been operating for more than 15 years on the continent . Thanks to a wide range of solutions, AFRIKANET can connect the entire continent, from large organizations to small ones, including households .
AFRIKANET uses VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) technology, which allows Internet reception via satellite. VSAT solutions are divided under three names: VSAT (using C-band and Ku-band), which is more suitable for structures such as banks, public services or large enterprises; WAKA miniVSAT (using Ku-band), specially created for small and medium enterprises, as well as for households; and Hi! Ka & GoSat (using Ka band), for all budgets and needs, in East, Central and West Africa .
