Avanti Communications lands Nigeria’s first ever satellite landing permit

London-based satellite data communications provider Avanti Communications has picked up the first landing permit in the history of Nigeria.

Avanti Communications said the Nigerian Communications Commission’s authorization  – which took place at the NCC headquarters in Abuja – allowed it to strengthen its business in the largest African economy.

Speaking on behalf of the Executive Vice Chairman, the Director for Spectrum Administration, Dr Austin Nwaulune, highlighted the NCC’s mandate which is to foster the rollout of communications services to create economic growth and development.

“Avanti is the only operator to have invested in satellite gateways in Nigeria to ensure the highest quality of service in the country,” said the firm’s chief regulatory officer Ann Vandenbroucke.

“Together with our local partners, we aim to drive greater access – including in outlying rural areas – to innovative services that are available and affordable to all citizens, businesses and schools,” she added.
