Under the agreement, Solarkiosk will use satellite connectivity to provide Internet access to underserved areas, initially in Africa.

This will be done via Solarkiosk’s E-HUBB structures - designed by the Berlin-based architecture firm Graft - which use solar technology to provide electricity to all systems, including the satellite dish, to enable a wide range of connectivity services to the local community.

The partnership between SES Techcom Services and Solarkiosk is the first of many steps to deliver off-grid, connected solar infrastructure solutions for communities worldwide, targeting individual users, businesses, schools, medical centres and farms.

It enables SES and Solarkiosk to provide fast Internet access in regions that are sorely missing reliable connectivity options.
