“AMOS-17 places us directly into the exciting growth of Africa’s Sub-Saharan vibrant markets”. Pollack said in a statement after the launch.

“As a leading multi-regional satellite operator, Spacecom is introducing the most advance technological satellite with HTS beams to service Africa. This is where AMOS-17 will deliver a large selection of services to a variety of broadcast, broadband and telecom clients.”

Amos-17 is expected to stay over Africa and provide television, internet and phone services for 20 years.

Satellite Launch African Needs Internet Penetration:

Africa has one of the fastest-growing populations in the world. The prediction is that the continent will reach 2.5 billion in 2050. This is according to Eran Shapiro, director of business and technology ventures at Spacecom, at a press conference last month. Half of its current population is under the age of 18.

The continent, however, has a major lack of internet access equipment and has many areas that is not having internet connection at all to any communication infrastructure.

“So the opportunity is clear,” said Shapiro.

To get connectivity via the Amos-17, locals can set up a solar-powered terminal, he added.

The launch was originally planned for last weekend but was postponed to repair a possibly defective piece of equipment on the Falcon 9 rocket, which carried the satellite into space.

Amos-17 weighs 6.5 tons and is about 115 feet long.
