Our conversation with Mr. Ofer Asif shed some light on two very important things. First, there is an immense need for faster and better connectivity in Africa with an increasing amount of population being reliant on the internet for work, e-learning, and entertainment. Secondly, Spacecom is in constant pursuit to become one of the key-players through B2B (Business-to-Business) and B2G (Business-to-Government) services.
They aim to bring better digital connectivity to all of Africa with their novel technological initiatives. These intiatives include enabling better connectivity through AMOS satellite technology and their Digital Connectivity Platform (DCP). Mr. Asif in the conversation restated that these technological advancements are not only cost efficient, but they also enable better communication to the people, enables the government to perform their functions better and provides the scope of better healthcare, local diagnoses, agriculture, etc.
