Angola’s MSTelcom extends agreement with Intelsat.

Global satellite services provider Intelsat S.A. has entered into a multi-year agreement with fixed telecoms provider MSTelcom, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Angolan national oil and gas company Sonangol E.P.

“MSTelcom will leverage Intelsat’s satellite and network expertise to offer high quality, reliable and cost-efficient broadband service to consumers and corporations operating in the oil and gas and banking sectors within Angola,” says a joint statement from the two companies.

“Under the agreement, Intelsat will deliver a fully managed broadband service that provides Internet access into and out of Angola. The network will leverage C- band capacity on Intelsat 14 at 315º East and on Intelsat 22 at 72º East, as well as the company’s IntelsatOne terrestrial network,” adds the statement.

The statement further adds that Intelsat is to provide MSTelcom with a point-to-point internet broadband service.

Furthermore, the two companies note that the design of the Intelsat network is to enable the transition to a point-to-multipoint service that allows MSTelcom to share bandwidth among multiple sites.
