In response to the growing need of data and internet usage for various purposes including official and family use, Coollink, a Nigerian ISP and system integrator with nationwide presence has launched Asta, a brand new service that is delivering satellite broadband internet to consumers in Nigeria.
While unveiling the product in Lagos, the CEO of Coollink, Shahin Nouri said the new service is tailored to the needs of local consumers as it increases broadband penetration and offers seamless satellite broadband everywhere including rural areas in Nigeria.
Also speaking, Abdurrahman Mubi, Senior Technical Manager at Coollink said that while there are other satellite internet services available in Nigeria, Asta stands apart for numerous reasons.
He said the service is highly available and specifically tailored to the needs and demands of Nigerian consumers; it is affordable, covers the majority of the Nigerian territory and offers features such as speeds of up to 20 Mbps, data rollover and free night zone.
Asta was launched in September and fully launched on November 1 by Coollink, partner of Konnect Africa, a company set up by Eutelsat in 2015 says Mubi.
He said that Asta will continue this tradition with high speed Internet access available for consumers and enterprises across the Nigerian territory and beyond. “When it comes to enterprise applications, Asta will benefit companies in virtually every niche. With premier connectivity and infrastructure, clients will be able to use Asta for everything from small office home office and enterprise applications to complex Government solutions”.
He further said that Asta is also available for residential customers at affordable rates in areas where broadband service was inexistent. according to him, the service is delivered using antennas as small as 74 cm in diameter, which can be easily installed in the most difficult of terrains and in as little as two hours. With this move, Nigeria can expect an increase in broadband penetration which will generate employment, grant communities in remote and rural areas access to eLearning platforms and broaden SME’s customer base, among several other benefits.
“We have registered nationwide and Africa-wide partners to ensure that Asta is available to consumers all over”, says Tayo Sadare, Service Delivery Manager at Coollink in a statement.“
We have one of the most reliable and diverse network capabilities so you can increase up-time, improve scalability, and materialize operational efficiency. We are not your typical ISP – we own our network, we master our solutions, and always go the extra mile,” she added.
“Coollink has forged its name as a major ISP in Nigeria and across Africa with a high level of customer satisfaction and the aim to create a better user experience for customers. Known as one of the most reliable ISPs in the region, Coollink is proud to make it easy for its customers to focus on the task at hand as opposed to the reliability of their Internet connection”.
