UK Based Satellite Internet Service Provider, Bentley Walker, has this week announced new C-Band satellite internet services for customers in Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
The new C-Band service has been built to offer class leading signal strength and quality of service throughout the coverage area, where it will bring two-way broadband internet to remote areas. The C-Band services will complement the broad range of satellite internet options that Europe's leading satellite internet provider, Bentley Walker, offer.
C-Band satellite is a popular choice in areas prone to tropical storms and other heavy precipitation. As C-Band utilises a longer wavelength for transmission this is inherently less prone to the drop in signal strength that can be experienced during particularly bad weather when using short wavelength systems.
As a result of the new service provision, Bentley Walker are able to offer a number of C-Band options to suit all customers with a need for a rain fade resistant remote internet connection. From dedicated connections (1:1 contention) for corporate user through 5:1 and 10:1 contention packages able to bring remote service at a budget price. FAP free subscriptions will also be sure to appeal, giving customers fixed prices independent of their upload/download usage.
Customers across Africa and Europe are already signing up to the service, either ordering hardware through Bentley Walker and their local agents or using existing hardware. The 1.8m dishes that C-Band utilises are already common throughout Africa and the recommended modem, the iDirect Evolution X3, will already be familiar to many users. Where Bentley Walker's C-Band service differs is in the infrastructure in place to deliver the best possible service to its customers.
Bentley Walker's C-Band service is uplinked from the new Skylogic teleport in Sardinnia, one of the most modern ground stations available, and certainly one of the best positioned to deliver broadband services in to Africa. This announcement marks the continuation of a fruitful relationship between Skylogic and Bentley Walker who already are heavy users of Skylogic's Teleport in Turin.
