Angola-based telco NetOne announced on Tuesday the launch of its low-cost internet from satellite services targeted at citizens looking for easy Internet access. NetOne’s CEO, Jamie Ferreria, said that the expansion of NetOne’s service was made possible through the Middle East company, Yahsat.
The new satellite broadband service will be called YahClick. The technology makes use of VSAT systems which utilize the latest frequency Ka band. With C and Ku bands both approaching saturation, the new spectrum is expected to open up room for more powerful satellites which can deliver high-throughput bandwidth capacity to meet the growing demand.
NetOne will be offering the YahClick service in two models: the HN926 for residential use, and the HN9460 for businesses.
