NCC grants landing permit to Avanti for satellite-based internet

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has approved a landing permit for the HYLAS – 4 satellite space segment for Avanti Communications over Nigerian territory.

Speaking at the presentation in Abuja, the Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Professor Umar Garba Danbatta, said the landing permit is first of its kind in the history of satellite communications in Nigeria and would ensure Nigerians enjoy a better alternative with regards to internet penetration.

“This high capacity service has come to Nigeria through an international gateway that has been deployed by one of our local operators. With such high capacity facility in place and easily accessible, our local operators can now be more encouraged to deploy services via satellite to serve the underserved/unserved areas hence bridging the digital divide currently experienced by the nation,” he said.

The Director, Regulatory, of Avanti Communications Group, Ann Vandenbroucke, in her presentation noted that the landing permit is one of a kind as it would deploy the Hylas 4 satellite in providing  better alternative services to subscribers anywhere in Nigeria the way it has in other parts of the world.

She explained further that the emphasis laid by Avanti in infrastructure technology would further enhance the productivity of technology companies, create employment, and propel facilities through a web of telecoms echo system.
