iWayAfrica and Avanti improve download speeds across East Africa

iWayAfrica and Avanti have announced that consumer and business customers in Kenya can now benefit from increased downlink speeds to 15Mbps in a move that will improve their satellite connectivity.

The new offering is valid in Kenya and Tanzania for both existing and new service providers, and will be available from 1st June 2016.

“Providing increased value to customers is core to our service offering and the Avanti downlink speeds increase will greatly assist customers to become more productive and save time”, said Kenneth Munyi, Country Manager at iWayAfrica Kenya.

In May 2016, iWayAfrica announced that it had renewed its contract with Avanti Communications, who appointed the Corporate Broadband Provider as a partner until 2018. Munyi added that the strong relationship between the two companies has enabled significant growth for iWayAfrica over the last 18 months, saying “the contract extension will enable provision of fast, affordable satellite broadband in an effort to assist in bridging the digital divide.”

“Africa is the world’s second fastest economic growth region; and it is common knowledge that connectivity is crucial to its continued growth.  By improving the technology implemented, we are working towards improved services overall within several sectors including healthcare, education and social services as examples,” concluded Munyi.
