Vox has launched satellite broadband plans with its satellite broadband provider YahClick, offering better speed and more data options.
YahClick uses Ka-band satellites to provide satellite Internet connectivity for high-speed across Africa.
Vox would gradually get in touch with clients to offer them new opportunities to help them to change and switch to new connectivity plans.
These new plans offer a much wider range of service enhancements and service plans, maintaining the existing voice channel characteristics.
"There has been a remarkable improvement in speed from 1-7Mbps to 16Mbps, there is a wider range of service plans and users keep their voice channels," said Jacques Visser, a wireless Vox.
"This is the first phase of upgrading speed of YahClick satellite services. The second phase will increase the speed of 25Mbps," Visser added.
Migrating to new packages will not require changes to the client's premise equipment, and there will be no migration charges.
Each month packages have data allocation ranging from 5GB to 400GB, which is subject to the rational use policy of YahClick.
Visser has said that satellite broadband are particularly useful for clients in rural areas where the traditional infrastructure of the establishment is unstable or not.
