Divona, which provides internet, voice and data services in Algeria and the Middle East, has signed a multi-year contract with Eutelsat for a 72 MHz transponder on the EUTELSAT 21B satellite.

Karim Cherfaoui, CEO of Divona, stated: “This contract underpins Divona’s strategy to provide network continuity for national and international players operating in fields where we have recognised expertise including mobile telecoms, oil exploration and production as well as industrial integration.”
Michel Azibert, Eutelsat’s Deputy CEO and Chief Commercial and Development Officer, added: “Divona’s selection of Eutelsat 21B highlights our premium coverage of Africa’s largest country. The steady expansion of our activities in Algeria reflects our ambition to support the business of telecom operators who are at the forefront of the transition to digital across the entire country.”
