Paratus signs reseller agreement with Starlink for Africa

Integrated network services company Paratus Group has entered an agreement as a distributor for high-speed services across the African continent on behalf of Starlink, the world’s first and largest satellite constellation using a low Earth orbit.

This agreement, says Paratus, will allow it to provide Starlink to its customers across Africa, as operating licenses are awarded to Starlink in those countries. Initially, and with immediate effect, Starlink will be available from Paratus in Mozambique, Kenya, Rwanda and Nigeria before being rolled out to more countries.

Starlink is a satellite internet constellation operated by American aerospace company SpaceX. It provides high-speed broadband internet using a simple, scalable hardware platform that, it says, can be easily distributed across locations around the world. Starlink currently provides services to tens of thousands of business locations and serves customers in a multitude of capacities.

Paratus will be able to provide its customers with both fixed, mobility and maritime services with immediate effect and with 24/7/365 enterprise support. 

Group Chief Commercial Officer of Paratus, Martin Cox says: “This agreement aligns perfectly with our vision of transforming Africa through exceptional digital infrastructure and customer service. It means we can offer industry sectors – such as land and offshore energy, mining, hospitality, education, healthcare, agriculture and more – the reliable and constant connectivity they need to flourish, no matter how remote they are.”
