Phase3 Telecom, an independent aerial fibre optic network infrastructure and telecommunications service provider, has partnered YahClick, powered by Hughes, to offer high-speed, low-latency satellite broadband services to underserved Nigerians.

The firm stated that as a result of this partnership, satellite broadband services would be available throughout the country with a focus on unserved and underserved communities.

In a statement, the Vice President, Digital Transformation and Innovation of P3Tech, Phase3 Telecom, Muhammed Bashir, said, “Our satellite broadband services will provide tangible benefits in accessibility, service, cost, and socio-economic development to the unserved and underserved homes and businesses in these areas, unlocking all the opportunities that reliable, cost-effective satellite broadband products afford.

He said the partnership between Phase3 and YahClick would make Internet access available to residential and business users across the nation and bypass infrastructure deployment challenges and reach remote regions.

He stated, “Incorporated in 2003, Phase3 was licensed as a national long-distance operator by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) in 2006.

“Phase3 fibre connectivity extends into the ECOWAS region including Ghana, Benin Republic, Togo Niger, Cameroun, and Chad as well as international markets through strategic partnerships.

“A reliable, extensive and secure network covering thousands of kilometres with end-to-end capabilities and ensuring that clients’ seamless experience remains the core of every investment, innovation and technology that Phase3 adopts.”

The statement added, “It aims to unlock the socio-economic potential of the communities it serves by bringing the benefits of digital inclusion through its cost-effective and high-performance broadband solutions.

“Delivered through the High Throughput Satellites, the service uses the efficiencies provided by the reusable ka-band satellite frequency and it’s powered by multi-spot beam technology to make satellite broadband affordable and dependable in areas where there is limited to no terrestrial infrastructure.”
