From what has been gathered, the company is licensed/ registered by the Government of Liberia through the Liberia Telecommunication Authority (LTA) as well as the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications thereby granting it the legitimacy to operate as a satellite service provider in the country.
From what has also being observed, SATCON has developed a reputation of consistent delivery of professional service in seven (7) countries and more than three (3) major languages (English, French and Arabic, among others) while maintaining free service for installation as well as a USD$ 120.00 dollars for kit and other accessories.
