Via the partnership, Azercosmos will utilise all of the C-Band capacity of the Azerspace-1/AFRICASAT-1a satellite to provide services across the continent, thus enhancing and protecting the interests of hundreds of established services and millions of African end-users.

Mark Guthrie, chief commercial officer of Azercosmos, said: “Azercosmos is proud to continue its delivery of highly reliable satellites services that enable customers to expand their opportunities in Africa.”

Azercosmos will ensure the continued seamless distribution of broadcasting, data, video and audio services to more than 100 million African households, and the reliable provision of data connectivity in rural areas and emergency situations, the company said.
