BizSat is the ideal solution for clients living or working in remote, under-developed or under-serviced areas with limited or zero internet connectivity. It offers the opportunity for affordable, broadband internet connectivity.

Many rural communities can now finally have access to the Internet for the very first time and this is due to BizSat – Du Pont Telecom’s satellite-based broadband internet that delivers ubiquitous coverage.

An additional VoIP (Voice over IP) telephony service is offered to meet your communication needs.

By using the New Dawn Satellite, we can now provide speeds that are on par with typical urban offerings and previously unfeasible within these areas – 256/4096 kbps for upload/download.

In order to meet all the vast telecommunication needs of clients, we also offer VoIP (Voice over IP) telephony services utilising BizSat.

The only additional equipment needed – apart from that required for any conventional broadband Internet connectivity or VoIP telephony solution – is a one-metre satellite dish.
