Talia®'s Successful Beta Testing for African HTS Services  

Talia Limited has successfully completed their beta testing of the firm's Ka-band High Throughput Satellites (HTS) services in additional African countries that include Cameroon, DRC, Gambia, Ghana and Congo.

This announcement follows a week of constructive meetings with customers and partners at AfricaCom 2019, which occurred in Cape Town earlier this month. Joining other influential industry players that are driving Africa’s digital transformation, Talia held informational sessions about their latest connectivity solutions for Africa throughout the duration of the show.

In addition to the completion of beta testing in multiple West and Central African countries, Talia announced the signing of as many as three additional local resellers to provide fast and reliable Ka-band services to a diverse customer base throughout Africa.

As the access to broadband connectivity remains sought after in many parts of Africa, Talia’s is working alongside governments, ISP’s and carriers to bridge the digital divide by providing affordable high-speed connectivity solutions to different sectors across the continent.

Being committed to the sustainable and resilient development of sub-Saharan countries by providing internet connectivity to schools, SME’s and individual consumers, Talia is helping to bridge the digital gap as well as facilitating the social and economic growth of African populations.

The company is exploring opportunities for collaboration with several other governments and resellers across Central, East and West Africa to deliver its affordable and inclusive Ka-band solution to bring these communities online in a more sustainable and accessible way.

Ayes Amewudah, VP of Sales of Talia, said with low-cost and self-installed antennas as small as 74 cm., Talia’s Ka-band platform represents a robust and affordable solution that can reach places where fiber is not yet available, while providing comparable high speeds at reasonable costs. Bringing a wealth of benefits to users, Ka-band is the most cost-effective way of securing connectivity until terrestrial networks extend further into rural areas. It provides a user-friendly, self-reliant solution that can be deployed anywhere, regardless of the locations or existing infrastructure.
