Vox has launched new broadband satellite plans through its satellite broadband provider YahClick, offering better speeds and more data options.
YahClick uses the Ka-band satellites to provide connectivity to high-speed satellite Internet across Africa.
Vox said that you would progressively contact clients to inform you about the new options available and help them change the new connectivity plans.
These new plans offer improved speeds and a greater variety of service plans, while retaining the features of the existing voice channel.
"There has been a significant improvement in the speed between 1 to 7 Mbps at 16 Mbps, now there is a wide range of service plans and users can retain their voice channels," said Vox, chief of the wireless network of Jacques Visser.
"This is the first phase to improve the performance speeds of our YahClick satellite services. The second phase will offer speeds of up to 25 Mbps performance," added Visser.
Migration to new packages will not require any change in the customer prizes team, and there will be no migration charges.
The monthly packages have data allocations that range from 5 GB to 400 GB, and a new option that is not closed, which is subject to YahClick's just use policy.
Visser said that satellite broadband is especially useful for customers in underused rural areas, where the traditional fixed-line infrastructure is unstable or nonexistent.
