Avanti opens for business in South Africa

London-based satellite operator Avanti Communication now has its latest satellite, Hylas 4, on station and ready for work following a period of testing. Hylas 4 was launched back in April to its 33.5 degrees West.

Avanti officially opened up its Ka-band capacity for South Africa and sub-Saharan users on Aug 29th. Hylas 4 will operate with 64 fixed and 4 steerable beams from five Gateway Earth Stations to also significantly extend Avanti’s coverage to West and Central Africa for the first time.
