The Konnect Africa brand and new slogan, Taking Broadband Further, have been devised to reflect Eutelsat’s ambition to accelerate satellite broadband connectivity across the African continent.

With a 20 strong team located in key African markets and in Europe, Konnect Africa aims to become one of the leading suppliers of new-generation services, working in close partnership with African partners to promote high-quality broadband at affordable prices for homes and businesses, and contributing to reducing the digital divide on the continent.

The new brand is a new milestone in advance of the launch of commercial services that will start to roll-out in 2017, ramping up to cover more than 20 Sub-Saharan countries by 2019.
