Ibrahima Guimba-Saidou, SVP Africa Power of Satellite in Africa How satellite technology can help bridge the digital divide on the continent 1
Africa is the future 1 2 3 4 54 54 Countries in Africa 15% 1 billion people in Africa = 15% of the world 50% By 2030, 50% of Africans will live in cities 1.1bn By 2040, 1.1 billion Africans will be of working age Most of the continent’s population is concentrated in some of the most rainy areas.

Africa | Economy 3 Source: Whiteafrican: Middle class Africa: 2011
Africa | A rising market Strong demand for broadband and connectivity in non-urban areas Data and voice services for telcos and enterprises Mobile backhaul requirements for 2G/2.5G/3G expansion into rural areas Increased capacity has increased demand for triple play services Government-led initiatives to bridge the ‘digital divide’ and to ensure secured access Local TV content production, digital switch-over and proliferation of low-cost digital tuners and LCD screens enabling large potential for Pay-TV, Free-To-Air & Free-To-View platforms 4
Africa | The future of broadcasting TV Penetration TV home growth 2015 2009 Analog 86 million 123 million 50% 2015 DTT will be key growth driver of TV penetration, to grow >50% by 2015 DTH is another key growth driver as satellite operators focus on growing free-to-air and free-toview audience across the continent Strong demand growth for HD channel Launch of OpenView HD Free-To-View platform in Q4 in South Africa, with further expansion into sub-Saharan Africa Strengthening 5°E, 22W and 28.2W prime DTH/Video neighbourhoods 5
Africa | Bridging the Digital Divide 300 million people are over 50km from their fibre or cable broadband connection – the greater the distance the worse the connection quality 400 million people have no internet access at all In 20 years the number of cities with over 10 million inhabitants will double, driving demand for connectivity Fibre bridges the digital divide between the Western World and Africa, but does not bridge the digital divide within Africa between urban and non-urban areas Satellite provides efficient way of connecting the majority of the 700 million unconnected people Strong or growing demand for broadband and rural connectivity, data and voice services for telcos, mobile operators, enterprises and government services (education, health) 6

O3b | A revolution to mobile backhaul ▲ A different kind of satellite ▲ The medium earth orbit reduces delay by 75% compared with GEO ▲ Lower cost to build and launch compared with GEO ▲ O3b first satellite constellation build with mobile backhaul networks in mind ▲ O3b’s cost advantage enables the business case for 3G voice and data in rural areas ▲ O3b’s latency advantage reduces churn by improving the quality of voice and data services 13
How do we serve? Femtocells access via ASTRA2Connect Femtocells are small cellular base stations, designed for indoor use in a home or small business. It connects the user to the service provider’s network via broadband connection. Femtocells typically support 2 to 4 active mobile; allows service providers to extend service coverage indoors, where access is limited or unavailable. It relies on broadband access to create an IP path to the mobile network where calls control is handled. ASTRA2Connect provides the backhaul into the core mobile network. The solution has been tested and supports 3G cellular device such as mobile handsets and notebooks with mobile broadband capabilities. 14
