Overview

Raga Sat is the leading African ISP, in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

O3b’s next generation IP trunking solution is providing international capacity in addition to offering mobile backhaul services to connect both urban hubs and rural villages with ultra high-speed broadband at ultra low latencies and cost.

The service we can offer to customers such as Orange has been vastly improved overnight. After years of disappointment, DRC consumers and businesses can now genuinely look forward to the prospect of proper connectivity.”
