In the third quarter, Vodacom Group reached noteworthy milestones, notably unveiling Project Kuiper, a strategic partnership with Amazon’s low Earth orbit satellite (LEO) communications initiative.

Project Kuiper is set to augment Vodacom’s existing satellite collaborations, aiming to expand the accessibility of 4G and 5G services to a broader customer base in Africa. This initiative is especially targeted at reaching areas that pose operational challenges or are economically impractical to serve through conventional fiber or microwave solutions. The collaboration with Amazon reflects Vodacom’s commitment to overcoming connectivity barriers and enhancing telecommunications access in diverse and remote regions.
