The leading ISP provider in the Democratic of Congo, Microcom, was acclaimed as the best improved network on the continent during AfricaCom 2009 Congress and Exhibition for its last year’s work on the country’s Internet connectivity.
“As the largest ISP provider in the DRC, we have successfully addressed customer access to our network. Using Intelsat’s managed services as the cornerstone of our network, WiMax has enabled us to distribute quality Internet access to government entities, international organizations and businesses throughout the country”, commented Leon Ntale, CEO Microcom.
Microcom uses Intelsat’s GlobaConnexsm managed service and global satellite network as a vehicle to deliver faster, more efficient, cost-effective and reliable Internet connectivity to meet the growing demand for these services in Africa.
Founded in 1982, Microcom is the leading Internet access service provider in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Congo Brazzaville, with a private satellite network in twelve cities in DRC. In each city, Internet access is provided by a Wimax broadband wireless access network designed for providing high speed-data to the Internet users. Microcom is also the builder of the first African WiMax network with more than 6,000 CPEs installed.
