Bentley Walker Soon to Cover Libya

Bentley Walker is planning to extend its service coverage to Libya. The company will make use of the Ka-band VSAT broadband platform provided by Newtec. The MDM2200 IP Satellite Modem will be used to deploy the services.

The new high speed broadband service is expected to be commissioned on 26th September. It will provide high speed broadband Internet across Libya through the Newtec IP Broadband HUB (Sat3Play), which is installed in Cyprus at the Makarios Teleport. It will also utilize the Avanti’s HYLAS 2 Ka-band capacity that was launched in August 2012.

Poor terrestrial infrastructure, compounded by complex geography has meant that satellite based broadband internet is the only source of high speed solution in Libya. The region has a promising opportunity since it is covered by HYLAS 2.

 The new high speed internet is designed for consumers as well as SME and B2B. The service is 2 way and the high throughput terminals are able to support a wide range of IP based services.

Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec indicated that the company is pleased to work with Bentley to deliver the new service for the region. He also intimated that Newtec’s VSAT terminals have the capacity of reducing costs while maintaining high quality and enhancing the optimal links for the end users.
