SpeedCast, a global satellite communications and network service provider, has been appointed by NEDA Telecommunications to build a satellite-connected secured private network for one of the ministry offices of the Government of Afghanistan. Founded in 2003, NEDA is the first licensed Internet service provider in Afghanistan.
Under this multi-year service agreement, SpeedCast will build a new satellite-based private network with more than 50 sites to deliver required connectivity and service levels to the government end user.
“SpeedCast has been our main backbone network provider for the past few years. Their experience with the Afghanistan market and their expertise in satellite communications is instrumental to our success. This new network will open the door to a new market opportunity for us,” said Ahmad Ihsan, CEO of NEDA Communications
SpeedCast has been serving service providers and the private sectors in Afghanistan over the last decade, by providing connectivity and value-added services to the region.
