Thuraya, YahClick and G4T to support connectivity in South Sudan

Several high-growth sectors in South Sudan are to receive satellite-enabled connectivity solutions designed to serve specific requirements – with help from UAE-headquartered satellite solutions provider, Yahsat.

Yahsat has announced that its mobility arm, Thuraya Telecommunications Company, and its satellite broadband solutions provider, YahClick, have signed a new service partnership to launch mobility and data services in South Sudan in cooperation with the South Sudanese start-up Gate for Technologies (G4T).

Under the agreement, Thuraya’s satellite technology will connect remote communities and support the government in its efforts to develop the nation’s telecommunications infrastructure and enable e-government services.

Yahsat will also collaborate with humanitarian agencies based in the country by providing them with the essential connectivity to support underserved areas.

The new service agreement will leverage G4T market presence and partnerships with government entities, NGOs, MNOs, telemedicine, education and the oil and gas sectors.

The two companies say that their reliable, affordable and easily accessible services and solutions have positioned them as the preferred mobile satellite communications providers in Africa.

Yahsat adds that it has a longstanding commitment to the continent and that its decision to launch Thuraya’s mobility services in South Sudan will help to accelerate the country’s growth, development and digital transformation in response to an increasing demand for connectivity solutions.
