Konnect Africa offers free Broadband Internet Connection to Isolation Centers in Nigeria
Konnect now joins the fight of several African governments to combat Covid-19 by allowing access to care for the greatest number of people. Each isolation center will benefit from free broadband connectivity. This deployment is made possible through the partnership with Coollink, a foremost ISP in Nigeria.
Jean-Claude Tshipama, CEO of Konnect Africa, said, "This operation demonstrates our ability to meet as quickly as possible the connectivity needs of institutional and commercial structures, even in complex times like these. We want Sokoto State to benefit from our expertise and the quality of our broadband services by providing free connectivity to all isolation centers."
Konnect will also see its in-orbit resources increase tenfold with an entry into service of the Eutelsakonnect satellite in the coming months. With a total capacity of 75 Gbps, they will be able to provide very high-speed Internet of up to 100 Mbps, guaranteeing full coverage of Nigeria and 40 other African countries.
Konnect, in partnership with Coollink, has been operating in Nigeria since 2017, with the ambition of offering broadband connectivity to all segments of the population, in particular those located in unserved or underserved areas.
