RascomStar-QAF’s mission is unique in that it can provide full connectivity to all African countries, including underserved areas.
Thanks to its state-of-the-art satellite communication system and its prime position over Africa, RascomStar-QAF will provide a full range of competitive, value-added services to all African countries, enhancing and reinforcing the integration of Africa. Its satellite system is the result of the strong will of all African states to join efforts and co-operate in making the Pan-African satellite telecom infrastructure a reality. RASCOM-QAF1, the first satellite, has already been successfully launched on Ariane 5 in December 2007.
The range of tailor-made services offered by RASCOM’s system enables local operators to serve their clients’ real communication needs.
The company is responsible for financing, designing, launching and operating the RASCOM-QAF satellites, as well as defining and delivering services adapted to the African market.
At the same time RascomStar-QAF will provide satellite Bandwidth Lease Services (R*BLS) to African customers in C and Ku bands with a complete coverage of the African continent at affordable and competitive prices.
