Low-cost satellite internet from AfricaOnline

Marc Gregan, GM of local ISP, AfricaOnline, has announced the launch of ultra-low cost-satellite internet in Namibia with rates beginning at N$499.High speed internet literally anywhere in the country, is what AfricaOnline is offering through its latest low cost deal on satellite connectivity. Internet satellite only requires an antenna and a power source to provide internet access, even in the most remote corners of the country.
At a basic rate of N$499, AfricaOnline now offers the cheapest internet link of all ISPs. Basic subscription includes 3 gigabyte data with the out-of-bundle rate set at N$129 for every additional gigabyte. This is also cheaper than any internet connection that depends on a landline or a mobile base station. AfricaOnline’s download speed runs at 512 kilobit which translates to about 60 kilobytes per second per individual user.
AfricaOnline General Manager, Marc Gregan said following a limited launch, the new satellite product, NawaSat, has a waiting list and the company is rushing to fill orders. He said customers from lodges, farms, towns and villages were particularly eager to install satellite internet, but that there is also a waiting list of customers in the bigger towns.
