CSS, Forsway team up to provide broadband connectivity in West Africa

(Ecofin Agency) - On 7 April 2020, Mauritanian communications service provider CSS, and Forsway, a provider of innovative solutions using satellite and terrestrial broadband technologies, announced they will strengthen their partnership to provide affordable broadband in West Africa.

The new project will tap CSS’s local expertise, Arabsat’s Xtend Africa managed service and Forsway’s unique satellite broadband extension. It is a continuation of the evaluation phase of Arabsat's Xtend Africa managed service, which was first initiated by the two companies. According to the CEO and founder of CSS Houssein Cherif, the results- boosting poorly performing mobile and VSAT links affordably and dynamically- are very promising. And that comforted the two partners to embark on the next phase of their cooperation.

“Despite the uncertain times we live in, we are committed to investing in additional equipment and expanding our West African service offering. Now, more than ever, affordable broadband can make a difference in our local markets,” said Houssein Cherif.

Tobias Forsell, CEO of Forsway, added that "with people restricted in their mobility, affordable broadband is more critical than ever. With over 3 billion people lacking reliable internet access, Forsway is working hard to do its part in making connectivity accessible to all.”
