Revolutionary techniques for better connectivity

GBS uses various access technologies through local loop, microwave links, active local loop, Vsat and also optical fiber for better connectivity. We have shared bandwidth and dedicated bandwidth services.


Optical Fiber

GBS offers its customers 100% optical fiber access from their premises to Europe where it operates its BGP transit.

Optical Fiber
Lightning-Fast Connection

This medium can transport very large amounts of data over long distances. GBS offers its customers 100% optical fiber access from their premises to Europe where it operates its BGP transit.

In case the link is unavailable, the internet access is rescued via a satellite link, thus guaranteeing an availability rate for Internet transit of more than 99.999%.


This back-up mechanism is totally transparent and requires no manual intervention. The latency observed on the backup internet transit is of 650ms.

This is the ideal connection for high bit rates (from 2 Mbps to 1 Gbps) with a very low latency that can support all types of service.

This is the ideal connection for high bit rates (from 2 Mbps to 1 Gbps) with a very low latency that can support all types of service.

Optical Fiber can be considered for both Internet connections and private MPLS network deployments.

The theoretical maximum flow rates are virtually infinite. Due to limitations at other points of the network, the offers advertise theoretical speeds of 1Mb /s to 1Gb /s.

All the materials used by Global Broadband Solution meet international standards in the field, and comply with the execution and deployment standards relating to the regulatory and approval authorities for our industry.

To ensure the effectiveness of the deployment of a new optical fiber link to its subscribers, GBS carries out measurement tests on the bandwidth provided thanks to our traffic monitoring and management system (internally and at the level of customer equipment).

When deploying an optical fiber link, GBS in some cases carries out civil engineering work such as construction of inspection chambers, draft chambers, etc.

The civil engineering work is likely to make possible the installation of optical fiber which goes underground and has been selected after numerous studies as the only secure and reliable route for a long-term infrastructure.

About the service

  • Fiber optic interconnection between Kinshasa, Matadi, Accra, Brazzaville and London and Paris.

  • Coverage on Kinshasa, Lubumbashi, Matadi, Brazzaville

  • The availability of the service depends on the location of the buildings to be connected

  • The price depends on the distance between the point to be connected and the existing network (Ring)

  • The availability rate depends on the interconnections

  • Delivery time: on a case-by-case basis

  • It represents 30% of GBS installations

Data or Internet

Very small opening terminal

Global Broadband Solution (GBS) provides Africa with the most powerful VSAT technology currently available: iDirect.

Through this technology, GBS opens up new development opportunities in areas where telecommunications infrastructure is under-equipped: high-quality Internet service and telephone communications growing accessible to a wider range of users.

Our shared bandwidth services

GBS partners with British Telecom’s technical department, which is one of the European telecommunications leading companies. Our equipment and Hub

serving Africa are installed at BT Martlesham Teleport. Our Technical Hub is already operational in many African countries and mainly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Thanks to DRC’s position in the heart of Africa and of PAS 10 satellite coverage, we are able to offer fast Internet to all Sub-Saharan Africa.

We use NetModem, the very first router designed to work fast and easily with satellite IP communications at affordable costs.

NetModem is a compact terminal integrating in itself all the hardware and software parameters allowing the smooth operation of any IP application, including voice. It offers one of the highest bidirectional speeds available in the industry nowadays, i.e. a download speed of up to 11.2 Mbps and an upload speed of up to 5.75 Mbps.

Typical Applications

  • E-mail and Internet browsing

  • Files transfer

  • Virtual Network (VPN)

  • Voice over IP (VoIP)

  • Videoconferencing

  • Networking

  • Distance Learning

Our Dedicated bandwidth services

Global Broadband Solution (GBS) is also partnering with Intelsat, Satlynx and their technical teams to set up and deliver dedicated bandwidth services in Africa. Intelsat and Satlynx are world leaders in the global satellite communications industry.

Our C-band service is designed to meet the needs of medium and large businesses, universities, governments, Internet cafés and the Internet Provider. We offer dedicated connections on DVB/SCPC and SCPC/SCPC platforms.

We work in close collaboration with Comtech Vipersat Networks Inc., which provides us with the technology to implement Mesh Networking. We also provide Intranet solutions, incorporating voice and video based on these platforms.

Wimax Wireless Local Loop (WLL)
High-speed Internet access and transmission system

GBS has specific licenses and exclusive frequencies in 2.5 GHz and 3.5 GHz to ensure service quality free of interference. It is a high-speed wireless technology.


It is a wireless connection technology. WLL is an excellent and reliable means of access in African cities lacking Optical Fiber infrastructure. It also allows very fast installations. It has dedicated or shared bandwidth connections.

GBS offers a high-bandwidth, broadband access solution for high-traffic areas, offering integration of high-speed voice and data services and thus providing an ideal complement to its VSAT Internet service offering. Customers can connect to our Wireless Local Loop through a simple antenna.

Our Wireless Service

GBS has a team of certified Engineers qualified for installing any Internet and Intranet wireless infrastructure. GBS works with Alvarion's world-renowned 3.5 GHz and 5.8 GHz products and has recently introduced the all-new WIMAX technology.

Currently, GBS runs a Wireless Local Loop in Kinshasa, Kisangani and Lubumbashi in the DRC, and in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, and in Gaborone, Botswana, to serve its local customers.
