The "SA Connect" Programme May Be Complemented With Satellite Connectivity

Broadcast Media Africa has learnt that South Africa is seriously considering the deployment of Satellite technology as a viable complement to fibre for its "SA Connect" initiative.

According to the ITWeb magazine, South Africa's deputy minister for the Department of Telecoms and Postal Services, Ms Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams made this declaration during an interview conducted at AfricaCom 2017 - the African Telecoms Media and Technology show.

Ms Ndabeni-Abrahams conceded that as the pace of the SA Connect initiative is somewhat slower than expected, it serve South Africa better if, for example, Satellite is deployed to bring faster connectivity to the table.
