Eutelsat 115 West B, the first all-electric satellite of the Eutelsat Communications fleet, has been fully powered up and is now providing services to customers across the Americas. The satellite has extended Eutelsat's coverage of the Americas to Alaska and Canada in the North, Easter Island in the West and to Patagonia in the South, creating a Pan-American footprint. Eutelsat 115 West B will be followed into orbit in early 2016 by the all-electric Eutelsat 117 West B satellite that will be located at 117 degrees West to boost capacity for Latin America broadcast markets.
