The company has announced that it has established an ISP in Uganda to provide highly secure broadband services to clients mainly around Kampala and Entebbe. 

The Internet services provider has a presence in more than 30 African countries with a growing range of fiber routes in coastal and landlocked Africa. 

Gilat Satcom was one of the first companies in Africa to offer both non-stop East to West coast-to-coast and international connectivity. 

It said the ISP will deliver cost-effective communication capacity along with a wealth of value-added technologies and services to business clients over its extensive fiber and satellite links.  

It added, "Customers in Uganda will benefit from a range of new and innovative security measures which Gilat Satcom introduced earlier in the year to prevent Distributed Denial of Service attacks which make websites and servers unavailable to legitimate users and block both local and international links."

Dan Zajicek, CEO of Gilat Satcom, said “Ugandan businesses need fast and reliable connectivity to help them grow domestically and abroad.  We have invested heavily in our networks in Uganda so that our customers can benefit from the very substantial bandwidth and tailored communications services that we already provide across Africa. Customers will also appreciate our significant international communication infrastructure, experience and support.”
