Afrikanet - Oxford Consultech
This company provides satellite Internet connection wherever you are in Africa in the satellite beam footprints shown, using 74cm, 98cm, 1m, 1.2m, 1.8m or 2.4m diameter antenna dishes.
Availability is in C-Band, Ku-band satellite beams and HTS ka-band as shown in the maps on the right:
C-Band: iDirect and Comtech hubs with modem X5 or Modem CDM 570
iDirect Evolution X3 and X5 on the Intelsat IS-14 and Eutelsat E8W. 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.
COMTECH EF DATA service is available for SCPC/SCPC using Comtech CDM-570L modems and DVB-S2 / iSCPC using iDirect modems X5.
Hardware price from Euro 2990.00
Ku band: iDirect hub with Evolution DVB-S2 ACM and Newtec MDM 2200
iDirect Evolution X3 DVB-S2 ACM 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 425.00 for a complete system on Ku band.
Ka band, HTS - High Throughput Satellite: HUGHESNET hub with HNS HTS 2xxx Modem from 74cm dish with speed up to 25MBps and up to 100MBps
