Speedcast Government to Tackle Electoral Fraud in Niger

Speedcast Government is supporting a UN Agency and an independent national electoral committee in Niger, Africa, in their mission to ensure that no electoral fraud takes place.

In preparation of the upcoming national elections, Speedcast Government has been asked to provide satellite internet services, equipment, life-cycle operation, installation, maintenance and logistics support for eight regional electoral sites.

The project is divided in two phases and expected to be completed before legislative and presidential elections take place in 2020-2021.

According to Brum Cerzosimo, Senior Director of Global Accounts, as part of the great efforts being taken to provide a transparent, fair and equitable election process in Niger, Speedcast Government is pleased to be able to support the UN’s mission in this endeavor and the company looks forward to future opportunities where the firm's SATCOM expertise can add value.
