PINET is one of the first Internet Service Providers in Africa. At Inception, PINET’s focus went beyond the regular dial-up Internet service (LogOn), to implementation of complex Internet projects addressing specific needs (HostDirect, LAN, WAN, DomainDirect, Training and Consultancy).

We have however expanded our focus beyond Internet access solutions to Internet content and application development.

We are renown for outstanding technical support provided by highly professional and courteous staff.


BroadbandDirect is a new product that delivers broadband Internet directly into offices, homes and remote locations. The two-way VSAT solution provides fast, reliable and stable access.

It is based on high-end standalone indoor units (not just add-on PC cards) and at least 1.8m dish (not smaller dishes like 1.2m), which ensure stability and upgradability. No need for mast, no need for telephone lines.

It's monthly bandwidth cost is quite affordable and fixed. Charges are not based on unpredictable data transfer rate ("per MB" billing). It is ideal for schools, universities, cybercafes, SMEs, homes, offices, government departments, banks, hospitals, hotels & guest houses.

It can be used for VPN by banks and other multi-branch organisations and can be deployed within days anywhere in Nigeria and the West Africa sub-region. BroadbandDirect takes the Internet where you want it.
