Eutelsat's Konnect satellite enters into service

Monday 16 November 2020 | 15:00 CET | News
Eutelsat has announced a new milestone for its Fixed Broadband operations, as the Konnect satellite launched in January has started operating at the seven degrees East orbital position. The all-electric satellite will have 80 percent of its entire capacity in service by the end of the year, rising to 100 percent by March 2021. Just over half of its capacity will initially focus on European countries (France, Italy, Germany, Spain, and the UK), with the rest accounted for by Africa.
