This company provides satellite Internet connection wherever you are in Africa in the satellite beam footprints shown, using 1.2m, 1.8m or 2.4m diameter antenna dishes.
Availability is in C-Band or Ku-band satellite beams as shown in the maps on the right:
C-Band: iDirect and Comtech hubs
iDirect Infinity Series 3100 or 5100 modems or iDirect Evolution X3 on the Intelsat IS-903 or the SES WORLDSKIES NSS-12 satellite. C band (using the lower 4 and 6 GHz frequency bands) is less affected by rain and is ideal for service in very high rainfall locations, but does generally need a larger size satellite dish and much more substantial mounting arrangements.
Vipersat COMTECH EF DATA service is available at Burum Hub [Castor] for SCPC using Comtech CDM-570L modems.
Ku band: iDirect hub with Infiniti or Evolution DVB-S2 ACM
iDirect Infinity Series 3100 modems or iDirect Evolution X3 DVB-S2 modems on the TELSTAR T-11N satellite. Ku band is ideal for low or moderate rainfall areas and the lower cost, ease of transport and installation of the smaller dish make it attractive. The high power of the Telstar satellite helps to minimise rain affects.
Hardware prices* are from euro 425 for a complete system on Ku band and euro 2990 on C-Band iDirect.
