Konnect Africa launches SmartWiFi in rural Africa

Thursday 9 November 2017 | 16:14 CET | News
Konnect Africa, the Eutelsat-owned satellite broadband service provider, has introduced SmartWIFI, a new hotspot service, as part of its ongoing commitment to bring digital opportunities to Africans. The new service leverages Konnect Africa's satellite broadband network to enable sales outlets (retailers, hospitalities, gas stations) as well as healthcare centres or schools to become a connectivity point and digital gateway to opportunity for the surrounding population. Users will be able to access the internet from a distance of several hundred metres around the hotspot.
