Coollink is the 1st ISP in Africa to launch the Yahclick satellite Internet broadband service

A partnership between YAHSAT and Coollink has announced the commercial take off of a satellite broadband service, YahClick that it said will change the way Nigerians access the internet. At a Resellers’ forum in Abuja on Wednesday, officials of both companies said the product will simplify acquisition of internet in terms of ease of access, cost of acquisition and affordable subscription fees relative to the speeds delivered.
Chief Technical Officer of Coolink, Nadim Chidiac explained that “The cost of acquisition can be factored into the cost of monthly subscription that is spread over a period of time” noting that subscribers need to make bulk payment to acquire connection hard wares.”The service plans offered by YahClick for home users cover email, web browsing, Skype, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms delivered at 256/1Mbps speed with 200Mb daily data usage amounting to around 6Gigabytes monthly available at N7, 500 monthly. Large businesses and corporate organisations can transmit hundreds of gigabytes daily with download speeds of up to 15Mbps and upload speeds of up to 3Mbps. Yashar Regional Director for Africa said the company now has two operational satellites in space with one covering the Middle East and parts of Asia while the second one launched in April this year covers Africa. “The launch of the satellites followed about four years of preparations which entailed setting up, hiring the technical partners and training the team which built the satellites.“YahClick is the primary brand and product of YAHSAT, it is the internet service provisioning arm. This is what we are presenting to you today in conjuntion with our Nigerian partner, Coollink”.
Chief Operating Officer of Coollink, Shahin Nouri said the partnership between YAHSAT and Coolink is the first in Africa and the only one in Nigeria. He disclosed that “Upon commercial entry into the market, businesses that had until now battled to have quality and consistent internet services can now add affordability to their list of possibilities. Since no cost is going to be incurred in deploying infrastructure, YahClick will be at a better advantage in comparison with fiber optic broadband in terms of deployment.” He said. Coollink is now seeking local partnerships of re-sellers across Nigeria to benefit from attractive offers to meet their profitability and aspirations.
