From press release...

SatADSL have announced new Ka-band satellite broadband services in Sub-Saharan Africa to bring cost-effective coverage to communities and businesses.

The system will use Avanti’s High Throughput Satellite (HTS) HYLAS 4, with 64 spot beams covering Africa and Europe plus four re-pointable spot beams that could be aimed at Caribbean, South America, Europe, Africa.

This video shows the Hylas 4 coverage pattern, from 33.5 deg west orbit longitude, above the Atlantic. Expand to full screen to see the detail.

The new service will use the Newtec Dialog® multiservice platform and Newtec’s MDM2210 IP Satellite Modems, which feature an embedded Wi-Fi-router. This modem delivers throughputs of more than 100 Mbit/s and enables end-users to easily add numerous devices to the same satellite subscription.
