Johannesburg, November 2018

Avanti Communications Group plc (Avanti) has signed a Master Service Agreement on its HYLAS 4 satellite with Paratus Group, a Pan-African telecommunications operator, to provide high-speed satellite broadband across Africa.

The Master Service Agreement extends the strategic partnership between Avanti and Paratus. Maxwell Technology who are part of the Paratus Group have been using Avanti’s HYLAS 2 services since 2012. Through Avanti’s latest satellite, HYLAS 4, Paratus will provide cost-effective and reliable broadband services into regions across Africa that suffer from unreliable or non-existent internet connectivity.

The Avanti partnership will enable Paratus to deliver high capacity sites for carriers and telecom providers to directly access cloud and content platforms in Africa’s largest Datacentre, making services more efficient and cost-effective.

Avanti Country Manager and Sales Director for Southern Africa, Brenden Pronk, said: “We’re delighted to extend our partnership with Paratus and support the delivery of affordable broadband across Africa, supporting our mission to help liberate the potential of communities and businesses wherever they are located.”

Paratus Group Chief Commercial Officer, Colwyn Van Rensburg, said “ We are committed to providing fast and affordable satellite broadband across Sub-Saharan Africa. Avanti’s HYLAS 4 enables us to extend our coverage in the region and continue working on a connected future for everybody.”

Paratus Managing Director, South Africa, Kallie Carlsen, added: “With HYLAS 4 we are further extending our reach and ability to provide high throughput connectivity throughout Southern Africa.”
