Internet provider AfricaOnline has started offering its high-speed Internet services via its new wireless network in Namibia. Through this new network platform, the FAI, a subsidiary of the iWayAfrica group, itself owned by Gondwana International Networks, is boosted by quality of service. It can now provide broadband packages of up to 100 Mbps for businesses and homes.
Marc Gregan, Managing Director of AfricaOnline Namibia, said it was essential for the company to launch this new network in the face of “demand for broadband that is growing at an explosive rate. Users want more capabilities to satisfy their appetite for the internet and social networks. We needed to expand our capacity to meet all users and support a wide range of applications – from video streaming to online gaming and surfing the Internet – delivering exceptional performance and constant high capacity.”
AfricaOnline’s new network was designed and deployed by RADWIN, a specialist in telecom solutions. It allows the ISP to easily “cover urban and rural areas with reliable and fast services and reach remote locations in the most cost-effective way,” said Peter Turvey, Middle East, East Africa’s Managing Director and southern RADWIN.
