We believe digital inclusion is essential

The internet is a critical enabler for social and economic change. It facilitates access to information, education, e-commerce, entrepreneurship and is revolutionising areas like agriculture, energy, healthcare and many others.

At Avanti, we believe in the power of our technology to transform our world and to deliver a fairer, safer and more sustainable future for all. We partner with national governments and NGOs like DFID, USAID and the World Bank to launch digitally connected solutions aimed at achieving United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We connect the unconnected by providing high-speed internet to the most rural and marginalised communities in sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

Avanti has a proud track record and extensive experience delivering above expectations across a number of verticals and sectors, mobilising organisations to deliver high impact solutions quickly and effectively.

Leaving no one behind

At Avanti, we are committed to achieving the UN’s SDGs and we continue to expand our projects across the African continent. We are already improving the educational outcomes of over 300,000 marginalised school children in Africa and we are always looking out for new ways to use our pioneering satellite technology to create positive outcomes in places where previous exposure to the internet is not existent. We understand the importance of what the internet can bring and we believe that everybody has the right to access it and fulfil their own potential.

  • Education

    Our satellite connectivity has the power to improve educational outcomes beyond the existing limits of schools, empowering students, teachers and communities, bringing them into the digital world.

    We have successfully delivered education projects to thousands of schools across Africa. Working closely with government departments, we provide reliable and fast satellite broadband, equipment, eLearning platforms and ICT skills training, ensuring teachers and students have access to the latest digital opportunities.

    • Our iKnowledge project brings connectivity to classrooms in Tanzania, changing the lives of students and teachers across the country.
    • We lead Kenya’s pioneering iMlango eLearning programme, which aims to improve educational outcomes in maths, literacy & life skills for 150,000 children in 245 schools.
    • We’re working with the Kenyan Ministry of ICT to connect 1160 innovation hubs across the country, helping young adults and entrepreneurs develop their ICT skills and bringing them up to speed with today’s digital world.


    eLearning delivers a multitude of proven benefits for children by providing a platform to develop their language, emotions, creativity and social skills. Evidence suggests schools are reaping the rewards of eLearning through:

    • Lowering the cost of teaching materials
    • Implementation of better-suited assessments and provide more accurate learning results
    • Improved attendance
  • Health

    Our flexible and scalable connectivity solution increases positive health outcomes and delivers unparalleled efficiency to your health services.

    Whether it be through connectivity to mobile screening units, or remote health centres across Africa, we don’t just connect your services and people; we strengthen and empower them.

    Connect – We can help you deliver eHealth services in every part of your country

    Strengthen – Deliver social transformation and raise the quality of life

    Empower  – Multipurpose and scalable connectivity that can be rolled out quickly and cost effectively

    We increase the cost-efficiency of your network regardless of application type or number of sites.


    Network efficiency

    • Allocate bandwidth capacity based on the needs of your applications, sites and user behaviour
    • Monitor activity across your entire network and make critical improvements faster

    Per-site efficiency

    • Multi-purpose hardware allows one location to operate multiple applications with little to no reconfiguration
    • Low CapEx makes it worthwhile to connect a site even if bandwidth requirements are minimal
  • Emergency Services

    In times of crisis, mobile communications and fixed infrastructure cannot always be relied upon.

    Communication networks can become overloaded or suspended, and in remote and rural areas, there may be a lack of established infrastructure. And yet in today’s connected world, communications are increasingly important to provide situational awareness and maintain command and control.

    Avanti’s Ka-band connectivity provides secure and reliable high-speed connections that can support all emergency data and information requirements and communications systems, even in the most rural of locations or when all other cellular communications have failed.


    • Ka-band satcoms, already integrated with 4G and LTE nodes, provides the means to restore communications infrastructure – anywhere
    • Bronze and Silver command posts can operate independently of failed terrestrial communications systems, and with the bandwidth to deliver video teleconferencing and multi-media communications and the ability to receive and monitor CCTV surveillance
    • Avanti provides first responders, eyes on the ground, or tiered commands, with portable communications providing mega-bits of capacity on demand
    • Avanti’s Ka-band connectivity can enhance, ensure and assure critical communications, command and control, wherever it is required
  • Farming and Agriculture

    With extensive coverage of EMEA, we provide agriculture businesses with fast and reliable internet access.

    Avanti’s Ka-band satellite technology operates independently from traditional networks giving your business secure, private and dependable connectivity, no matter how rural your location. All you need is a satellite dish and a router. The service is quick to deploy and is scalable to accommodate your business’ growing needs.


    Our satellite fleet uses the latest Ka-band technology, delivering services with outstanding performance at the lowest costs

    • Our proprietary infrastructure offers a highly reliable service
    • Our satellite fleet uses the latest Ka-band technology, delivering services with outstanding performance at the lowest costs
    • We offer a range of different market leading products, from raw bandwidth to off-the-shelf broadband

    Who benefits from satellite broadband?

    • Agriculture businesses operating in rural areas with no broadband connection
    • Agriculture businesses located far away from the telephone exchange
  • Finance

    Avanti’s Ka-band satellite technology is the fastest and most secure way to deliver financial services in remote locations.

    The financial industry is required to reach and support the needs of their rural customers. Unfortunately terrestrial infrastructure in rural areas is poor or nonexistent, hindering progress. Banks and financial institutions have the opportunity to establish services that would otherwise not be possible to roll out.


    Corporate Networks Connectivity 

    • Allows digital connectivity between different sites of large companies

    VPN Applications

    • When the main requirements are VPN tunnelling with Public or Private IP addresses, and traffic encryption

    Connectivity for Transactional Services 

    • Money transfer and banking applications are prioritised over day-to-day office applications

    Automatic Telling Machines (ATMs)

    • The main requirements are Closed Users Group with private IP addresses; and Committed Information Rate (CIR) to allow reliable authentication and authorisation of transactions
