A land of opportunity

Nigeria is a nation that wants to grow, and in order for this growth to happen the communications infrastructure has to be able to meet the demands of modern day life and reliable connections are the key to this growth. Recent figures indicate that the number of people using fixed line communications in Nigeria is decreasing and the number of mobile users is rising dramatically. There are several reasons for this. Firstly, the present PSTN service in Nigeria is unreliable and antiquated and Nigeria Telecommunications Limited (Nitel) and Mtel (its mobile subsidiary) are suffering problems. Secondly, the privatisation of NiTel has been halted once again adding to its already substantial woes, and the recent deregulation of the existing mobile sector has enabled the entrance of GSM communication network providers such as MTN Nigeria, Globacom, Zain and Mtel. The use of personal and business mobiles has increased dramatically and it is now estimated that there are over 60 million mobile phone subscribers in Nigeria and this will continue to rise exponentially. In order for these mobile users to be connected to global IP backbones from remote areas they need a reliable and fast satellite solution to compensate for the lack of  a reliable terrestial service.

BusinessCom Satellite Internet Nigeria VSAT is a leading edge solution for remote internet access where hard wired solutions are simply not available. BusinessCom is one of the leading VSAT Nigeria service providers with excellent coverage and service. Recent figures show that Nigeria has over an 11% share of the total internet users in Africa as a whole with over 600 million wireless connections. For a business with vision there are endless opportunities for growth in the communications marketplace.

Satellite Internet access via BusinessCom is available across Nigeria. In a recent survey the results showed that most towns in Nigeria have 6 or more public internet Cafes. These are generally privately owned and operated, and often connected over European satellite internet connections. The BusinessCom service allows for new business opportunities for organizations that provide this kind of service.

As well as offering satellite Internet access in remote areas our services also provide the gateway for GSM operators to offer GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) to their customers. This enables consumer access to the internet via WAP-enabled mobile phones, smartphones or PCs using the phone as a modem. BusinessCom is evolving alongside technological improvement. This, in turn, improves our capacity to deliver value added services to our customers.  This is especially true for mobile telecommunications technologies which now deliver a multitude of services across mobile platforms at very high speed. It is now possible to deploy 3G networks to remote areas where only recently slow speed access was the norm. In fact, the use of data cards and USB dongles through cellular 3G networks is one of the fastest growing markets in Nigeria and across African countries in general.

What makes BusinessCom satellite Internet access Nigeria so appealing is the fact that in Nigeria they have is no countrywide fibre optic backbone necessary for the delivery of  broadband Internet services.  This inherent lack of connectivity makes wireless technology such as satellite Internet the only viable alternative.
