UAE-based satellite company Yahsat has launched its YahClick satellite broadband service in Pakistan today. Claimed to be the first KA-band satellite broadband service in the country, YahClick promises unprecedented internet access to its customers across Pakistan.Residents in Pakistan will be able to connect instantly to satellite broadband via a small satellite dish and modem. They will no longer have to access the internet through congested networks. The service is available across all parts of the country, including places where terrestrial infrastructure is presently not available.
Speaking about the launch, Masood M. Sharif Mahmood, CEO of Yahsat said: Our consumer launch in Pakistan is a significant milestone for YahClick. Regulatory approval by the Pakistani authorities for consumer use paves the way for us to continue our global growth strategy in this promising market.
The exceptional demand in the rural and underserved communities across Afghanistan and the whole of Africa has led to YahClicks rapid growth to become the largest satellite internet provider in Africa and a dominant player in the Afghan market. We are confident that with this launch of our service in Pakistan, we will attract even more business and home users who are striving to for better connectivity and access to global online, social, cultural and knowledge communities.

YahClick will help Pakistan accelerate its economic growth and social development by improving access to information and reducing operational costs for internet access in the most remote and currently underserved areas. Giving businesses instantaneous access to global market intelligence, students the tools to reach information sources from anywhere and health care professionals the ability to connect with colleagues and experts are the important ways in which YahClick will improve the daily lives of people across Pakistan, added Mahmood.
