In what can be described as a significant moment in TD Africa’s goal of democratizing internet access in the heart of Nigeria and across Africa, Starlink has inked a deal with the technology distribution powerhouse to distribute its Kits in Africa.
Disclosing this in a statement, TD Africa’s Coordinating Managing Director, Mrs. Chioma Chimere, highlighted the synergy between TD Africa’s experience as a leading distributor of technology and business solutions and Starlink’s commitment to transforming how the world accesses the internet. She expressed excitement about the growth opportunities this agreement presents across the continent while emphasizing TD Africa’s mission to provide accessible, affordable, and usable internet solutions to individuals and businesses.
The deal will allow TD Africa to leverage Starlink’s unique selling points such as high speed, low latency, broad coverage and scalability to bridge the digital divide. Starlink has emerged as a transformative player since launching its first orbital satellite in 2019. As of year-end 2023, it has a customer base of 2.3 million and a presence in over 70 countries.
Thus, TD Africa’s extensive distribution network and experience coupled with Starlink’s high-speed internet aims to deliver innovative solutions and services that offer broadband connectivity, promoting economic development across Africa.
Starlink delivers high-speed, low-latency internet to users all over the world, providing quality and cost-effective internet access to homes, and businesses and especially caters to those in remote locations that are currently underserved or unreached. As the world’s first and largest satellite constellation using a low Earth orbit, Starlink delivers broadband internet capable of supporting streaming, online gaming, video calls and more.
Starlink is engineered and operated by SpaceX. As the world’s leading provider of launch services, SpaceX is leveraging its deep experience with both spacecraft and on-orbit operations to deploy the world’s most advanced broadband internet system.
