MADA provides multiple telecommunications services across Africa. This agreement is a multi-year operations contract which commenced on 28 October 2016. MADA has signed up for service on SES’s SES-5 satellite, specifically on a C-band Hemi beam with an 115Mbps Internet capacity linked through SES Betzdorf teleport facilities – a tier 1 Internet provider with extremely high service and teleport availability.
“We live in a digital era where consumers expect to be always connected from a personal and business perspective, regardless of their geographical location,” said Ferdinand Kayser, Chief Commercial Officer at SES. “This deal will enable end users to have Internet connectivity, communicate across social media platforms and stay connected to the digital world, thus, bridging the digital divide. With this new deal, SES is able to bring Internet connectivity to MADA’s customers where terrestrial infrastructure is currently non-existent.”
Dominic Fahed, Director of Africa Operations at MADA, added: “Our main focus is to provide value added services to our customers. This agreement allows us to tap into SES’s infrastructure for the greater good of end users and avail high quality Internet services to fulfil their daily online needs. Beneficiaries of this deal include: MNOs requiring 3G data access, 4G Telecoms, ISPs, corporate businesses and NGOs, given that connectivity has become a basic requirement to fulfil day to day operations in the workplace.”
