Cameroon's Camtel partners SatADSL to distribute satellite connectivity

Cameroon's Camtel partners SatADSL to distribute satellite

Cameroon's national telecoms operator Camtel has entered the satellite services sector having signed an agreement with Belgian provider of VSAT services SatADSL.

The agreement positions Camtel as a distributor of satellite broadband internet that does not require physical infrastructure, enabling connectivity service delivery to underserved rural areas.

According to the agreement, Camtel will leverage SatADSL's Cloud-based Service Delivery Platform (C-SDP) platform to offer competitive packages to end-users.

SatADSL will fulfil all of Camtel's satellite connectivity requirements across all frequency ranges, including Ku-, Ka- and C-band.

The partnership facilitated several pilot projects by businesses within Cameroon's public and private sectors involving SatADSL's satellite connectivity solutions.

"We chose to partner with SatADSL because its solutions will enable us to target the widest possible spectrum of end-users, meaning the broadband services will truly benefit entire communities," said David Nkoto Emane, CEO at Camtel. "SatADSL's knowledge of the region and technical expertise played a big role in the pilot's success and we look forward to extending the project."

SatADSL plans to integrate and deploy its VSAT services across the central African country, enabling Camtel to offer competitive broadband packages.

Caroline De Vos, Co-Founder and Director of Operations of SatADSL said: "As an organisation that strives to bridge the digital divide in Africa, we are delighted to partner with Camtel to blanket Cameroon with much-needed connectivity."
