- Why Us
NEDA Telecommunications was established in May 2003 as the first licensed ISP in Afghanistan. Starting with dial up and moving swiftly into wireless broadband services NEDA quickly established itself as the leading ISP and WISP in Afghanistan. Our operation has grown continuously and NEDA is now considered the major player in Afghanistan now carrying over 30 Mbps on our networks, with a presence in most major cities and plans to roll out still further. We offer services on 6 different satellites and are the only ISP with internet services available through wireless, VSAT, dial-up and CDMA. Our Service provision has expanded into new technologies such as Voice over IP telephony and we are even offering WiMAX provisionally in Kabul for roll out in June 2007.
We have 3 World Class satellite earth station facilities in Kabul, Jalalabad and Mazar-i-Sharif connected to one of the world's most modern and well developed satellite platforms. With coverage from Eutelsat's W5, W6 and Express AM 22 (SESAT II) satellites and 24 hour manned support from the hub in Cologne, Germany we have SCPC/DVB and SCPC/SCPC backbone connections which we have complete confidence in. Our backbone is totally secure unlike TDMA services and other VSAT services which cannot guarantee CIR/Dedicated bandwidth services. Through these satellite links Neda offers its high speed secure wireless services in Kabul, Mazar-e-Sharif and Jalalabad.
Throughout the provinces and other urban centers of Afghanistan we offer VSAT services on 5 satellites and all 3 of the most widely used VSAT hardware platforms, Hughes's Directway system, Viasat's Linkstar system and the most popular and widely available VSAT system in today's market iDirect Technologies 3000 Series.
Rather than investing in one technology, that in today's rapidly evolving technology market becomes out dated tomorrow, NEDA has partnered in an iDirect hub situated in Turin, Italy and formed close partnerships with satellite operators offering different technologies on different satellites in order to give customers a wider choice of product. Our iDirect VSAT product is without doubt the most reliable VSAT product in the market and our secure Airspan wireless network has been tried and tested in Afghanistan for more than 4 years.

NEDA recently trialed and completed successful testing of Airspan's WiMAX products in Afghanistan. We now have both line of sight and non line of sight equipment that is as well developed as any wireless equipment in the market today. With omni directional base stations capable of over 40Mb of through put and Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) able to deliver 11Mb to a single site we have taken a step closer to US and European network deployments and will even surpass many countries in the developed world.
In order to complement our internet services NEDA established an IT solutions company that offers, network support, on call IT support, network design and configuration, hardware and software sales and much more. We have installed complete office IT systems and have successfully completed projects as large as an entire ministry and as small as a single home users network installation.
