Yahsat announced that it will launch its innovative YahClick “broadband everyone” satellite service in five key markets. YahClick will provide local businesses and consumers with cost effective, high performance, wide reaching, and reliable internet connectivity.
From August 2012, the YahClick service will be available in Iraq, Afghanistan, South Africa, Nigeria, and Angola where access to high performance broadband internet is currently limited. YahClick will be operational across most of its coverage area spanning a total of 28 markets, in South West Asia, Africa and the Middle East, including the GCC states, by October 2012.
The launch of YahClick affirms Yahsat’s position as one of the region’s leading satellite communications solutions provider and creating a means of global connectivity via satellite broadband services, which is at the forefront of the company’s business vision.
“This is a key milestone for Yahsat and we support the expansion of the commercial phase of Yahsat’s satellite Y1B. This takes the offering of the Abu Dhabi based satellite operation globally,” said Jassem Mohammed Al Zaabi, Executive Director of Mubadala ICT. “The development is in line with our own mission of economic progress for the Emirate to diversify and harness expertise in various industries.” Contine>
