Financing is now available through Bank Gaborone's Vehicle and Asset Finance division.

VSAT is a communication technology that allows a user to establish a connection via satellite using a two-way satellite ground station with a small dish antenna, aiming to deliver constant internet connectivity to remote areas.

Bank Gaborone offers finance options for the implementation fees and equipment as well as the first year of connectivity, making the investment decision easier from a customer perspective.

Shawn Bruwer, managing director at Paratus Botswana, said that Paratus now offers VSAT solutions throughout Sub-Sahara Africa including Botswana. “With Paratus VSAT solutions, we can connect any business in remote areas such as lodges, guest farms, construction sites and mines.”

Other benefits of Paratus' solution include multiple regional hubs where the customer connection terminates. This reduces the latency or the time it takes for the connection to be made.

“With Paratus VSAT Solutions, we offer quality bandwidth, which is affordable, reliable and includes 24/7 support,” Bruwer concluded.
