Celebrated as winner in three categories
Announced yesterday at the SatCom Star Awards ceremony in Johannesburg, South Africa
Johannesburg, June 1, 2011 – Gateway Communications, the largest provider of carrier solutions in Africa, was named ‘Satellite Service Provider of the Year’, ‘GSM Backhaul Operator of the Year’ and was commended for providing ‘First Class Customer Service’. The SatCom Star Awards are designed to celebrate the continued growth and success of the satellite marketplace and focus on some of the exceptional performers within the industry.

Through these accolades, Gateway Communications demonstrates the difference it has made to the satellite industry in Africa and the new and innovative services it has introduced to the market, whilst aiming to connect the unconnected. It also brings to light the high customer satisfaction levels it has received and the extent to which it has accommodated the changing needs of the system in Africa.

“Gateway Communications has once again proven that it is a leader in the satellite industry, with access to more satellites across more regions, than any other service provider in Africa,” commented Mike van den Bergh, CEO, Gateway Communications. “Satellite will remain hugely important across Africa, because a number of countries depend substantially on satellite for their voice and data traffic, whether calling city-to-city, country-to-country, or browsing the web. Understanding the fundamentals of communication in Africa is what we do and with so many new uses of satellite-enabled technologies on the way, we’re confident that satellite services will continue to play a pivotal role in pan-African connectivity for many years to come.”
