Avanti and Q-KON launching LEO services in South Africa

Avanti has partnered with Q-KON to provide LEO satellite connectivity to customers across South Africa.

Using LEO connectivity from Eutelsat OneWeb, the deal aims to meet increased demand within the region by bolstering Avanti’s multi-orbit solution, allowing the firm to offer a combination of LEO and GEO services effective immediately.

Kyle Whitehill, CEO, Avanti Communications, said: “This hybrid model gives our customers in South Africa the assurance that all their unique problems can be solved through our services. This is particularly important for our enterprise customers in South Africa where the need for resilience is key.”

Dr Dawie de Wet, CEO of Q-KON, noted that the firm would provide Avanti with Eutelsat OneWeb customer-centric services via its Smart Satellite Service technologies, as well as end-to-end and turn-key project supply, delivery and support capabilities.

Avanti has a strong presence in South Africa, and notes that it aims to make Africa its primary revenue source within the next two to three years.
