RCS-Communication, a leading ISP in South Sudan, has established the first site for Avanti’s HYLAS 4 high-speed satellite broadband service in-country.
Following successful beam testing in early November 2018 in the capital Juba, the new Ka-Band service is now available to RCS-Communication’s customers in South Sudan, with high throughput speeds of up to 35Mbps download and 4Mbps upload. The site at RCS-Communication’s technical office in Juba is the first HYLAS 4 service in East & Central Africa.
RCS-Communication partnered with iWayAfrica, an Avanti Master Distributor, to bring the service to South Sudan. iWayAfrica has been a key partner of Avanti’s since 2014 for its HYLAS 2 services across East and Southern Africa. With HYLAS 4, Avanti’s high-speed Ka-Band service is now available with a wider footprint of sub-Saharan Africa helping more people to become digital citizens.
“RCS is always on the lookout for suitable technology and services that increases options to our clients and enhances their user experience. We focus on the Enterprise and SME market, and with the HYLAS 4 broadband service, we see SME clients across South Sudan benefiting from high speeds and a selection of volume options at affordable rates” said Flippie Odendal, Managing Director, RCS-Communication.
“With HYLAS 4, we can bring Avanti’s service to South Sudan and enable our partner RCS to deliver even faster download and upload speeds”, says Michèle Scanlon, Managing Director, iWayAfrica.
