Another internet access provider has joined the already competitive internet market in Cameroon. Konnect Africa is an affiliate of French giant Eutelsat.
The company whose specificity lies in the provision of internet access via satellite equipment, announced its entry into some African nations on June 6. Cameroon, Benin, Lesotho,South Africa, Tanzania, Swaziland, Uganda... are the targets of the French company, cameroononline.org reports
Konnect Africa is entering a very competitive battle championed by South African mobile giant MTN. Nexttel, Orange, Camtel, Vodafone are some of the internet access providers in Cameroon.
However, the newcomer appears to be the only company to provide internet access to the remotest parts of the nation where the others do not reach. This is because Konneck Africa uses satellite equipment.
New technology to improve on internet access speed in Cameroon is usually centred in cities, not in remote places.
