By Stanley Iwuoha

The Nigerian Communications Satellite (NIGCOMSAT) Limited has secured another feat for the provision of connectivity to INFRATEL AFRICA, a telecom giant in the country working on backhauling rural infrastructure project in the country.

The project is expected to migrate 100 locations to the NigComSat-1R Ka band hub platform.

This connectivity will improve rural connectivity and further bridge the digital divide, which the present administration’s digital economy is working assiduously towards achieving.

The company said the NigComSat-1R satellite capacity will continue to support businesses in improving connectivity solutions to expand telecoms networks and improve connectivity.

According to the Managing Director NIGCOMSAT Ltd, Mrs Nkechi Jane Egerton-Idehen, the collaboration with INFRATEL AFRICA is a welcome development as NIGCOMSAT Ltd is now placed to claim its rightful position in the industry.

Mrs Egerton-Idehen, said since she assumed office about eight months ago, she has received the cooperation of staff and customers “and together we are making significant progress in delivering services in the areas of Transponder lease, broadband internet, broadcast service and other turnkey solutions”, she added at the signing of the agreement between the two companies.

The Managing Director noted that all the people she is currently working with, are all internal staff, which shows the level of competencies on ground. She assured INFRATEL AFRICA that NIGCOMSAT Ltd in recent time upgraded its infrastructure to meet the world standard for service delivery.

‘I have no doubt on the strength and competence of the staff and infrastructure l am working with and l want to assure you that we will deliver quality service to you and your customers’, the MD/CEO NIGCOMSAT declared.

Infratel Africa is connecting unserved and underserved communities to the global digital landscape, promoting inclusivity and digital equality by leveraging its infrastructure, expertise, and technology as a leading telecommunication infrastructure service provider in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa.

“This amongst others is achieved by providing technology solutions to drive transformational services such as Agency Banking, Telemedicine, e-learning, e-government and Solar based cold rooms, within the rural communities utilizing strategic alliances with technical partners to deliver value to clients and enhance communication across Africa, bridging gaps regardless of social class or location. “
