Avanti and Turksat sign Ka-band deal for Africa and Middle East

Avanti Communications has signed a new agreement with Turksat that will see the firms deliver extensive, continuous coverage across Africa and the Middle East.

The businesses will combine the capacity and coverage of Avanti’s HYLAS 4 and HYLAS 2 satellites with Turksat’s newly launched Turksat-5B satellite to provide customers in regions where terrestrial infrastructure is limited with access to more than 100 Gbps of state-of-the-art high throughput GEO Ka-band capacity.  

Kyle Whitehill, CEO of Avanti, commented: “Given the rapidly changing satellite industry landscape, it is a powerful proposition for our respective customers for Avanti and Turksat as two strong regional GEO operators to join forces to offer wider coverage and increased capacity.”
