LONDON, UK, AND BRUSSELS, BELGIUM – Professional VSAT services provider SatADSL, GlobalTelesat – which provides telecommunication services in rural and challenging locations – and satellite operator RascomStar announced a new partnership to offer affordable satellite broadband connectivity across Africa.


Under the agreement, Global Telesat will manage the services from its state-of-the-art teleport facilities in Alicante, Spain. From there, Global Telesat can connect its iDirect Evolution hub to SatADSL’s innovative Cloud-based Service Delivery Platform (C-SDP), enabling it to offer a range of services for communities, businesses, administrations and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) – all without investment in a physical infrastructure.
