Monday July 21, 2016 - Africa Online, a Pan-African broadband provider and Avanti Communications, a leading provider of satellite data communications services, has announced that consumer and business customers in Kenya and Tanzania can now benefit from increased downlink speeds to 15Mbps in a move that will improve their satellite connectivity.

Kenneth Munyi, Ag Country Manager, Africa Online Tanzania said the new offering is valid in Kenya and Tanzania for both existing and new service subscribers. “Providing increased value to customers is core to our service offering and the Avanti downlink speeds increase will greatly assist customers to become more productive and save time, “said Mr. Munyi.
