MEASAT has announced an agreement with iSAT Africa, for capacity on the AFRICASAT-1a satellite.

Under the terms of the agreement, iSAT will expand their VSAT and broadcast solutions across Africa using AFRICASAT-1a’s high-powered pan-African C-band coverage.

AFRICASAT-1a is the best choice to meet these requirements, due to its high power and its African and European coverage via a single beam.”
