BACK TO PRESS RELEASES

Botswana Telecommunications Corporation doubles capacity on Spacecom's Amos-7 in multi-year satellite services deal 14.09.2019 Tel Aviv & Gaborone - 13 September 2019: Spacecom (Tel Aviv Stock Exchange: SCC), operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, and Botswana Telecommunications Corporation Limited (BTC) today announced that BTC is doubling its capacity on AMOS-7 communication satellite KU-beams.

With this new capacity, BTC is adding cellular backhaul and various long-distance communication services to enhance rural area connectivity. AMOS-7's KU-band beams enable mobility by providing high data rates for communications-on-the-move irrespective of location in country. Thus, BTC is able to offer e-learning, e-medicine, e-commerce and other e-government services to residents countrywide wherever they are, even when they are traveling. The capacity also allows BTC to provide improved broadband service to industries operating outside major towns e.g. Tourism, Agriculture, Construction, Banking, etc. and offer Community Wi-Fi Hotspots, Safer Cities, Smart Farming and Business Continuity services throughout the country. Spacecom's Vertical Solutions Division is working closely with the company to assist in implementation of infrastructure for the new services.

According to Anthony Masunga, Managing Director of BTC, Once again we are working with Spacecom to bolster our business offerings. BTC is adding new and exciting services that will go far to reduce our country's digital divide and offer citizens in previously underserved areas more options to communicate throughout Botswana and beyond. Satellite communication via AMOS-7 is facilitating our growth and fulfilling our purpose, which is to provide superior communication solutions to Botswana anywhere and everywhere to enable them to live connected.

Spacecom CEO and president David Pollack stated, By the end of 2019, Spacecom will have three satellites servicing Africa: AMOS-7, AMOS-4 and AMOS-17. The ongoing cooperation with BTC signifies the success of our strategy marrying our satellite's communications capabilities to the proficiency of our Vertical Solutions Division to deliver superior Turn-Key solutions with our partners.

About Spacecom:

Spacecom (Space-Communication Ltd.), operator of the AMOS-3 and AMOS-7 satellites co-located at 4 W, and AMOS-4 at 65 E, provides high-quality broadcast and communication services to Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia via direct-to-home (DTH) operators, Internet service providers (ISPs), telecom and MNO operators, network integrators and government agencies.

With AMOS-17's addition, Spacecom further expands its reach in Africa and Asia reinforcing its position as a leading multi-regional satellite operator.
