Rural Connectivity Made Possible with Asta, Satellite Broadband Everywhere
For over 15 years, Coollink has worked to connect the people of Nigeria with the rest of the world through terrestrial (fibre and wireless) and satellite networks. Before entering the country, Nigeria was under served by ISPs for years and left in the dark while the rest of Africa and the world continued to increase broadband penetration. Nigeria is a resilient country and wants to grow significantly to compete with other nations. For the economy to grow, Nigerian entrepreneurs and business must first have access to 21st Century internet services.
Our new satellite solution, Asta, bridges the gap between rural communities and the rest of the nation and provides tools valuable to modern everyday life, businesses, and social workers in the country.
What is Asta?
Asta is a high-speed satellite internet solution that brings internet connectivity to the most rural communities in Nigeria, allowing them to grow and gain access to the same information, education tools, and online entertainment that the rest of the world has enjoyed for over 20 years.
A study by the World Bank showed that an increase of 10% in broadband penetration would increase GDP growth by 1.38% in developing ones. With increased broadband access comes a better quality of life and a more educated and connected population. Our goal with Asta is to ensure that Internet connectivity is no longer a worry for Nigerians.
How Does It Work?
The Asta satellite internet service sends and receives information through a satellite orbiting the Earth and is not impacted by faults that affect terrestrial networks, thus giving users a consistent connection to the world without worry. We provide users with up to 20Mbps of download speed which is more than enough for even the most intensive business and enterprise applications. Such speeds at affordable rates were unheard of prior to Asta in rural and remote communities.
Installing the equipment and connecting to Asta is simple and is relatively affordable for all users. Users purchase the modem and the outdoor kit from Coollink and select the Internet plan that best suits their needs. The installation and setup is seamless as we are using our skilled network of installers for that, with to ability the have an Asta link up and running anywhere in Nigerian with 48h to 72h.

With a reliable service delivering such high speeds, Asta is for everyone, and the possibilities are endless. Asta can be bundled with solutions that can impact everyday life, businesses, schools and social workers in a positive way, anywhere in Nigeria.
Families in Nigeria can now connect to their loved ones abroad and take advantage of the information available online right from the comfort of their own home.
