AfricaOnline launches JOLA Ka-Band high-speed broadband Satellite service on Avanti’s HYLAS 4

Accra, Ghana, 9 April 2019

AfricaOnline, one of Ghana’s oldest ISPs and a Gondwana International Networks (GIN) subsidiary, has today announced the launch of its new JOLA service, a high-speed broadband satellite service powered by Avanti’s HYLAS 4 satellite that offers 100% coverage of Ghana through multiple spot beams.

Making the announcement to business leaders and media at a launch event in Accra, Foster Plender, Managing Director for AfricaOnline Ghana said, “We are proud to be the first to launch the Avanti HYLAS 4 service in Ghana. Our rigorous testing over the past few months has given us the confidence that our customers will be very satisfied with the quality of service and speeds of up to 35Mbps download”.

The JOLA service has 100% coverage of Ghana so even the remotest location can be connected. Whilst perfect for remote areas, Plender also highlighted the use case for high-speed satellite as a business continuity service in urban areas too.

The launch of the Ka-Band JOLA service in Ghana opens up new opportunities for delivering on development goals of the nation by ensuring many more sectors of the population becoming connected. Plender presented examples from across the GIN group of Ka-Band JOLA solutions meeting the needs of rural judiciary courts, agriculture services, eLearning initiatives, remote hospitality lodges, micro-finance institutions and CCTV and Machine2Machine (M2M) applications for construction and national manufacturing plants.

GIN through its subsidiary, iWayAfrica, has partnered with Avanti since 2014 for the rollout of high-speed satellite services in Southern & Eastern Africa.  In August 2018, the group was granted Master Distributor status for its new service on the latest satellite, HYLAS 4 with new market focus on West and Central Africa.
