AfricaOnline, one of Ghana’s oldest ISPs and a Gondwana International Networks (GIN) subsidiary, has announced the launch of its new JOLA service, a high-speed broadband satellite service powered by Avanti’s HYLAS4 satellite that offers 100% coverage in Ghana through multiple spot beams.

The launch opens up new opportunities for delivering on development goals of the nation by ensuring many more sectors of the population becoming connected.

“We are proud to be the first to launch the Avanti HYLAS4 service in Ghana,” said Foster Plender, Managing Director for AfricaOnline 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”.

Plender presented examples from across the GIN group of Ka-Band JOLA solutions at the launch, 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 and eastern Africa.  Last August, the group was granted Master Distributor status for its new service on the latest satellite, HYLAS4 with new market focus on West and Central Africa.
