We.Stream enters African market
South African connectivity supplier Poynting agrees to a partnership with the mobile WiFi hotspot supplier
We.Stream and Poynting agreed to a partnership for the distribution of the We.Sream in Africa. We.Stream focuses on growth by the realization of international partner channels. Poynting is a top global provider of integrated antenna solutions, responsible for the innovation, design and manufacture of its market-leading products. It now adds the We.Stream to its portfolio, since they strongly believe in the We.Stream proposition. Poynting launches its newest solution officially during Travel Visa Showcase, on the 15th of August in Johannesburg. For We.Stream, Poynting is the first African-based reseller, after already having signed several partnerships in Europe, USA and Asia in the last months.
Jurgen ter Hoeve, CCO of We.Stream: “We were already working together succesfully with Poynting for our other business unit. That is why I’m very happy and satisfied that Poynting sees the opportunities that we offer with We.Stream. The African market provides many opportunities to us. There are numerous challenges when it comes to the availibity and pricing of mobile data, mainly for incoming and outgoing travelers. With We.Stream we can support them by providing affordable and secure mobile internet. Together with the announcement of this agreement, I am proud to spread the news that we have also expanded the list of countries where We.Stream has coverage, by adding Congo and Madagascar.
Michael Howard, CEO of Poynting: “Roaming charges can be extremely high for both incoming and outgoing travellers in South-Africa. That makes the proposition of We.Stream very interesting for our market. We launch this new solution officially during Travel Visa Showcase 2018 in Johannesburg. The event gathers professionals and management in the (business) travel market, such as corporate travel agents, Tour Operators, Embassies and Airlines. This is the perfect moment for Poynting to enter the market with We.Stream.”
