Econet_founder_Strive_Masiyiwa.jpgLiquid Telecom, a subsidiary of Econet Wireless Group, has purchased two transponders on the new Eutelsat Satellite W2A which was launched in February from the Baikonur Space Centre in Kazakhstan, to provide telecommunications, and broadcasting capacity over much of central and southern Africa.

A spokesman said this new satellite joins the fleet of three other satellites utilised by Liquid Telecom to provide services over the Southern African region. The two transponders represent almost 25% of the available African KU band capacity on the satellite and will carry super fast bandwidth speeds, utilising the latest new generation satellite access technology. This will be available to ISPs and as part of a new low cost VSAT offering.

The spokesman said the satellite had been safely deployed in its designated orbital slot and confirmed that Liquid will start selling capacity from the 1st July to operators, and Internet Service Providers, in the East and Southern African region.

This additional capacity is expected to completely eliminate the bandwidth shortages which have been experienced across the region and result in dramatically improved internet access speeds. It is also expected to be used by cell phone operators to launch services like 3G and GPRS, which require lots of bandwidth for access to the worldwide Web.
