Avanti Communications' Historic First Ever ... Strengthens African Business With Landing Permit in Nigeria   

Avanti Communications (Avanti) has been awarded the first Landing Permit in the history of Nigeria by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

This authorization enables Avanti to strengthen their business in the largest of the African economies.

The Permit was granted to Avanti at the NCC headquarters in Abuja with several dignitaries in attendance. Speaking on behalf of the Executive Vice Chairman, the Director for Spectrum Administration, Dr. Austin Nwaulune, emphasized the NCC’s mandate, which is to foster the deployment of communications services to grassroots, to create economic growth and development.

Ann Vandenbroucke, Chief Regulatory Officer at Avanti Communications, said the company is the only operator to have invested in satellite gateways in Nigeria to ensure the highest quality of service in the country. Together with the firm's local partners, Avanti aims to drive greater access — including in outlying rural areas — to innovative services that are available and affordable to all citizens, businesses and schools.
