The African Telecommunications Union (“ATU”) is undertaking a study on how much C-band satellite services are being used in Africa, as they are evaluating whether part of this frequency band should be given to the mobile industry. In order to obtain this information the ATU has sent a questionnaire to regulators in Africa and asked them to fill out information about satellite C-band services in their country.

Showing the regulators how extensively the C-band is used, and the multitude of different important services provided via satellite, will help to raise awareness about the need to safeguard the C-band.

Inform your regulator about the critical services you provide via C-band satellite in Africa!
