Yahsat launches YahClick, satellite broadband service in Ghana

UAE-based satellite operator Yahsat has launched its broadband service YahClick in Ghana. The launch was in partnership with Yahsat’s regional broadcast and Internet service providers Comsys and Teledata.

Denver Bartman, Country Manager Yahsat, Africa, said Ghana was a very important market and the addition of Yahsat’s technology to Ghana’s digital landscape would cut down economic losses due to frequent breakdowns in fixed, wireless and mobile internet connectivity.

Yahsat said the service will help overcome the substantial economic losses in recent years due to frequent internet breakdowns in Africa. Using the Ka-band powered by its High Throughput Satellite (HTS) spot beam technology, YahClick’s services will enable communities, businesses and the government to maintain services.

Key verticals targeted by YahClick include banking and finance, mining and oil and gas. In addition, the service is expected to benefit 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,” commented Farhad Khan, Chief Commercial Officer, Yahsat.

“Today, 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,” Khan added.

Yahsat launched its flagship service, YahClick, 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.
