SES Astra Pushes Into Africa
SES Global company SES Astra is continuing its push into Africa with a new agreement with Worldsat, another SES Global company. Worldsat is providing SES Astra with the capacity for its geographical expansion into the entire continent. The agreement covers 24 C-Band transponders on the Worldsat 2 (WS-2) satellite, scheduled for launch later this year.
Ferdinand Kayser, SES Astra CEO, commented, “With the Astra 2B capacity, we are already providing active service to our customer Accelon, notably in Nigeria, and, as of this month, also in Ghana.”
