RLTT expands connectivity agreement with Eutelsat OneWeb in Libya

Eutelsat OneWeb has signed an exclusive distribution partnership agreement with Libyan operator RLTT (Rawafed Libya for Telecommunications & Technology) to provide high-speed, low latency connectivity across Libya.

The agreement will see RLTT expand its relationship with Eutelsat Group to include a hybrid bundle of both enhanced GEO and LEO services. Eutelsat OneWeb will provide exclusive access to its Low Earth Orbit (LEO) powered connectivity constellation, delivering full connectivity over Libya from early 2024.

The services will provide high-speed, low latency connectivity for a range of applications including commercial connectivity to the Oil and Gas and Financial Services industries, Government sectors, cellular backhaul for telecoms operators and remote connectivity for humanitarian organisations.

Cyril Dujardin, Co-General Manager of Eutelsat OneWeb, said: “Eutelsat OneWeb was formed to bring together GEO and LEO constellations to meet a growing customer need for integrated satellite connectivity, and the extension of our relationship with RLTT shows we are delivering. We continue to see huge demand for high-speed connectivity as we roll out our LEO services globally, with the wide variety of potential use cases that the increased resilience offers proving highly attractive to customers.”

Taha Ellafi, Chairman at Rawafed Libya for Telecommunications & Technology, said: “By combining both LEO and GEO powered connectivity, we are able to meet the different needs of our customers without having to use multiple providers.”
