Glo partners France’ Eutelsat, connects remote areas with internet

Remote communities and underserved areas across Nigeria which do not yet have access to internet connectivity have been assured of unlimited connectivity by Globacom.

The company, which recently signed a business deal with France-based Eutelsat, a global commercial satellite company, said one of the major benefits of the agreement was the provision of VSAT/satellite-based internet service and satellite-based community wifi internet service in unserved areas across Nigeria.

Globacom, in a statement on Wednesday, said that was also in line with the Federal Government’s desire to extend broadband coverage beyond urban and densely populated areas. 

“Millions of Nigerians will, therefore, have access to communicate and transact business with the communal provision of internet access by Globacom in these rural areas”, 

It said the Glo-powered Eutelsat Konnect Satellite platform will help to facilitate payments to workers or companies in remote areas in addition to helping subscribers to undertake electronic transactions as well as connecting subscribers in urban cities to their friends and families in remote communities.
