Sonema: a 30-Year History
A Letter From the President
It all started one evening in the autumn of 1996. Back then, Sonema was fledgling company selling telecommunications equipment in Monaco.
We decided to turn our focus to Africa, in order to help developing enterprises and institutions by providing secure reliable satellite telecommunications services.
We told ourselves that our primary value would be freedom, the freedom to work everywhere and to offer the very best to our customers. That we would be respectfully and humbly listen to them to better identify their needs. And that we would continually work to find the very best solutions to assist them with their development. Along the way, we made friends with our partners and our clients. We fell in love with Africa and its people.
Over the years, we have invested in more efficient facilities; we built our own teleports and developed new solutions. We have constantly sought to improve the quality of our services and the performance of our solutions.
Today, we are a service provider and hybrid network operator operating in over 40 countries with a network of loyal and efficient partners. For the past 20 years, we have managed telecommunications networks for nearly 100 international companies both in Africa and Europe. And we continue to provide support and assistance to meet the new challenges faced by African companies as we grow with them.
It’s a great story born from a great idea which remains faithful to our initial dream of providing independence and quality!
President of the Sonema group
