November 3, 2022 – Paratus Group announces a multi-year agreement with OneWeb to build a gateway in Luanda, Angola, which will be operational in the second half of 2023. This new gateway will provide low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite services to several countries in the region and will facilitate the provision of high-speed, low-latency connectivity to businesses, government, schools, clinics, and hospitals in under-serviced areas. This is the first of several planned OneWeb gateways in Africa. This agreement, combined with the recent launch of the Paratus fibre connection to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC); the inauguration of the Paratus Group’s data centres in Zambia and Namibia; and coverage in all of the Angolan provinces, means that Paratus has the requisite infrastructure to provide a highly sophisticated network hub in Angola and one that allows for expansion beyond its borders. The teleport will consist of 16 antennas and a network hosting facility, linking to OneWeb’s LEO infrastructure and thereby connecting Africa to the world and the world to Africa.
