Gilat Satcom, a provider of satellite and fiber-based connectivity services in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, has established an ISP in Uganda which is providing fast, reliable and highly secure broadband services to more than 60 business clients, mainly around Kampala and Entebbe.
The new ISP will deliver cost-effective communication capacity along with a wealth of value-added technologies and services to business clients over its extensive fiber and satellite links.
In particular, customers in Uganda will benefit from a range of new and innovative security measures which Gilat Satcom introduced earlier in the year to prevent Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks which make websites and servers unavailable to legitimate users and block both local and international links.
“Ugandan businesses need fast and reliable connectivity to help them grow domestically and abroad. We have invested heavily in our networks in Uganda so that our customers can benefit from the very substantial bandwidth and tailored communications services that we already provide across Africa. Customers will also appreciate our significant international communication infrastructure, experience and support.” said Dan Zajicek, CEO of Gilat Satcom.
Gilat Telecom Uganda is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gilat Satcom, headquartered in Kampala. Uganda is the third country in which Gilat Satcom has established physical presence, joining Nigeria and Ghana to provide wholesale international connectivity to the continent’s communication service providers.
