A UAE-based satellite operator, Yahsat, in partnership with celebrated broadcast and internet service providers Comsys and Teledata, has launched its broadband satellite service, YahClick in Ghana.
The introduction of YahClick is aimed at delivering reliable, cost-effective, high-performance internet that warrants a new age of high-speed connectivity.
Commenting on the product, Denver Bartman, Country Manager Yahsat, Africa, said Yahsat’s technology would help minimise economic losses emanating from regular breakdowns in fixed, wireless and mobile internet connectivity.
It’s estimated that each communication disruption costs Ghana about $6.3 million a day.
Mr Bartman said using the Ka-band powered by High Throughput Satellite (HTS) spot beam technology and YahClick’s services would enable communities, businesses and the government to unlock their full potential and achieve the level of social and economic development the nation deserves.
Notable institutions to leverage YahClick include banking and finance, mining and oil and gas.
In addition to supporting these key industries, the service is also expected to benefit from government supported initiatives, especially in education and healthcare.
“The driving force behind the launch of YahClick in Ghana is our desire to serve the country’s specific connectivity needs and deliver high-performance, customized satellite broadband solutions to its businesses and communities,” said Farhad Khan, Chief Commercial Officer, Yahsat.
“YahClick is recognised as the leading satellite broadband service in Africa thanks to its reliability and coverage, alongside the local expertise and quality of customer service provided by our trusted service partners such as Comsys and Teledata here in Ghana,” he said.
Both Comsys and Teledata are leaders in Ghana’s telecommunications sector and possess a solid record of delivering innovative communication solutions to a wide range of industries, NGOs, government entities and communities.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Greg Eid of Teledata ICT added: “We believe that YahClick Services will not only successfully meet our customers’ needs, but also open up new business opportunities across various industries.”
Kobi Ahon, Comysy Ghana Business Development Manager, said by introducing Yahclick’s game-changing technology to Ghana, the team would reach the most remote locations with internet connectivity through best-in-class satellite broadband services.
YahClick was launched in Africa in 2012.
It was the first operator to introduce HTS Ka-Band Satellite Broadband technology to the continent through Yahsat’s Al Yah 2 Satellite.
