As part of its contribution to the fight against COVID-19, Konnect, a subsidiary of Eutelsat Communications, has offered to provide broadband internet connection to all the isolation centres in Sokoto State.
With this, patients at the health facilities will have the opportunity to keep tab with happenings from across the globe with high-speed internet.
According to the firm, each isolation centre in the northern Nigerian state will benefit from free broadband connectivity made possible with the collaboration of Coollink, a foremost ISP in Nigeria.
Konnect, in partnership with Coollink, has been operating in Nigeria since 2017, with the ambition of offering broadband connectivity to all segments of the population, in particular those located in unserved or underserved areas.
According to the CEO of Konnect Africa, Mr Jean-Claude Tshipama, “This operation demonstrates our ability to meet as quickly as possible the connectivity needs of institutional and commercial structures, even in complex times like these.
“We want Sokoto State to benefit from our expertise and the quality of our broadband services by providing FREE connectivity to all isolation centres.”
On his part, the CEO of Coollink, Mr Shahin Nouri, said, “Helping the Sokoto State government to provide free satellite internet services to isolation centres is very important to us. It shows our engagement to deliver high-speed Internet anywhere in Nigeria and to help communities in crisis.
“Eutelsat Konnect has been a very important partner for us, and with such initiatives, is showing its commitment to the Nigerian market.”
In his remarks, the Commission for Health in Sokoto State, Dr Muhammad Ali Inname, noted that, “Konnect has shown great concern towards the good people of Sokoto state by providing internet connectivity to three COVID-19 Isolation centres in the state. This gesture will go a long way in facilitating the management of COVID-19 patients in the state.”
The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
