The deal was brokered after a series of deliberations by Timasaniyu Ahmed-Rufai, chief executive of NigComSat, and Newtec head Serge Van Herck.
In a statement signed by both chief executives, under the agreement Newtech would provide a Ka-band hub platform which includes terminals to offer business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) broadband services.
The platform will support optimal and cost effective voice, data, video, and internet service solutions across Nigeria via the NigComSat-1R satellite that launched last year in China.
Ahmed-Rufai said: "High speed and reliable Internet will transform the economy and lead
to more and better opportunities for many individuals. In 2011, we successfully put our high throughput satellite in the sky and I am pleased to welcome now our new technology partner Newtec.
“We decided to team-up with Newtec because of its track record of delivering reliable, fast and easy to use solutions at an affordable cost."
Van Herck said: "l am delighted to say that our new Ka-band technology will help to close the digital divide in Nigeria by using the latest broadband technologies to achieve the highest broadband experience and availability.”
