Talia Limited, the market-leading teleport, satellite and network operator and founding investor of Quika®, the world’s first free satellite internet provider has this week signed a multi-million dollar agreement with OneWeb.
This significant deal makes Quika, the world’s first consumer brand to offer broadband internet using the next generation LEO network. Services are anticipated to come online in 2021 across Africa before expanding into other regions.
Following a successful first round of investment, initial testing in the Middle East and the subsequent uptake of commercial services across the region, Quika® has agreed to further partnerships with licensed operators in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon, Ghana and The Gambia to roll out the second phase of commercial services to the African continent.
Alan Afrasiab, President and CEO of Talia Ltd and founder of Quika said: “We are now moving into the next phase of development and next round of funding to launch our free service provision across Africa. The successful tests we have undertaken in the past few months have shown the robustness of our platform and we are on course to move forward and connect many more people to the internet in regions where demand is high, and access is limited”.
Alan Afrasiab added: “We would also like to congratulate OneWeb on the successful launch of their first six satellites and we look forward to our continued partnership”.
