Satellite broadband pricing comparison

Vox Telecom is planning to launch its YahClick satellite broadband service aimed at consumers and businesses in rural areas.

Vox Telecom has partnered with Al Yah Satellite Communications Company PJSC (Yahsat) to provide satellite services to a wide range of “remote site” areas in both rural and urban environments around the country.

Vox Telcom’s new satellite broadband service will compete directly against Telkom’s SpaceStream Express product, Liquid Telecom’s broadband satellite offerings, and SkyeMax’s satellite service.

Vox Telecom punts the fact that their satellite service will be significantly cheaper than existing offerings, and we put their claim to the test in a simple pricing comparison.

The table below compares Vox Telecom’s broadband satellite pricing on some of the prominent packages with offerings from Liquid Telecom and Telkom.
