Connecting South Africa’s Mines

Region:          Southern Africa
Verticals:      Mining; Construction
Application: Broadband

In the Northern Cape, employees of a mining company could only access broadband via a highly contended 2Mbps connection, which was not sufficient enough to support multiple users trying to log on simultaneously. With hundreds of employees, the site regularly experienced lengthy work delays as crews were unable to give or receive instructions promptly. Consequently, standards of work were inconsistent and overall efficiency was lower. Logical Wireless partnered with Avanti Communications to provide South Africa’s mining and construction industry with high-speed satellite internet connectivity, enabling businesses to be connected nationwide.

The service, which is deployed via Avanti’s HYLAS2 Ka-band satellite, with 100% coverage of South Africa, provides speeds of up to 28Mbps.
