Vox has developed new satellite broadband plans using the satellite broadband provider YahClick, offering better speeds and more data capability.
YahClick uses Ka-band satellites to provide high-speed satellite Internet connectivity across Africa.
Vox said he would gradually contact customers to inform them about new opportunities and help them switch to new connectivity plans.
These new plans provide enhanced speed and a broader range of service plans, while maintaining existing voice channel features.
"Significant speed improvements from 1 to 7 Mbps up to 16 Mbps have been achieved, a wider range of service plans are now available, and users can maintain their voice channels," said Jacques Visser, Vox Wireless Manager.
“This is the first step to improve the speed of our YahClick satellite services. The second phase will provide a throughput of up to 25 Mbps, ”added Vissers.
Switching to the new packages will not require any changes in the customer's premises and there will be no migration charges.
Monthly packages include data allocations from 5GB to 400GB, as well as a new unlimited feature that is subject to YahClick's fair use policy.
Vissers said satellite broadband is particularly useful for customers in under-served rural areas where traditional fixed network infrastructure is unstable or non-existent.
