Internet Service Restored in African Nation through NovelSat and Gilat Telecom Collaboration

NovelSat collaborated with Gilat Telecom for quick restoration of internet connectivity following the West Africa Cable System (WACS) undersea cable cut.

The severe cable damage caused internet downtimes and slow speeds affecting all internet providers in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Using NovelSat’s high capacity connectivity solutions, Gilat Telecom was able to quickly restore connectivity, providing its MNO and ISP customers a resilient and stable satellite network with nearly uninterrupted service and better customer experience.

“NOVELSAT delivered Gilat Telecom with high capacity satellite modems on very short notice,” said Gary Drutin, NOVELSAT CEO. "This accomplishment is a testament to the quality of our operations team and of course our leading high-performance broadband technology.”
