The "Internet satellite Jet" service uses new-generation end-user terminals from Gilat Satellite Technologies. NordNet's service enabling HDTV, VoIP and up to 20 Mbps peak download speeds starts at EUR 29.90. SES said in September that its new service would also be marketed by Viveole and Wibox in France.
