SADC to benefit from Angosat-2 coverage

29 August 2023

The countries of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) should soon be able to benefit from the services of Angosat-2, Angola's telecom satellite, according to Mário Oliveira, minister of telecommunications, information technologies and social communication.

According to the minister, among the countries interested in satellite services are Botswana and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Zambia. The satellite capacity should reinforce the efforts of the governments of the member countries of the SADC in favour of the development of ICT in a context of accelerated digital transformation. This will make it possible to extend broadband connectivity in remote areas that are poorly covered by the terrestrial networks of telecom operators.
