SpeedCast Creates Joint Venture in Ghana
[Via Satellite 10-12-2016] SpeedCast International has finalized a joint venture in Ghana, which it anticipates will broaden the company’s service offerings, increasing reach and reinforcing expansion plans to provide a managed network throughout Africa. The joint venture builds upon the SpeedCast’s existing presence in Algeria, Libya, Nigeria, Kenya and Angola. The move places the company in a position to provide more communication services in Africa via fiber, wireless and satellite.
“Based on our existing business servicing energy customers offshore in Ghana, along with the anticipated growth in the region, we are delighted to have a local partner with an already extensive oil and gas sector presence. An important part of SpeedCast’s energy strategy is to anticipate oil field trends and proactively build support networks,” said Bill Green, managing director of SpeedCast Ghana.
