Euro Broadband, high speed internet wherever you are!
With the resources of 39 satellites offering coverage of Europe, Middle-East, Africa and Asia as well as the major areas of the Asia-Pacific and American continent, Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL, code ISIN : FR0010221234) is one of the top three world operators in terms of returns.
The Eutelsat fleet transmits a large range of fixed and mobile services for high speed telecommunications and the distribution of data for professional video networks and business networks.
Euro Broadband uses the Ka band resources of the KA-SAT satellite, the first multi beam satellite with major capacity in Europe.
This satellite allows the homes, businesses, administrations and professionals located in less accessible or inaccessible places to connect to the internet by satellite, everywhere in Europe and in the major areas of the Mediterranean Basin. Eutelsat, which has its headquarters in Paris, employs with its subsidiaries 1000 people from 46 countries.
Viasat is the global communications company that believes everyone and everything in the world can be connected. For more than 30 years, Viasat has helped shape how consumers, businesses, governments and militaries around the world communicate. Today, we’re a global team of fearless innovators finding better ways to deliver connections with the capacity to change the world. We’re developing the ultimate global communications network to power high-quality, secure, affordable, fast connections to impact people’s lives anywhere they are—on the ground, in the air or at sea.
A satellite broadband connection is a type of Internet connection that uses a satellite that is in orbit in space. Unlike a terrestrial connection which requires complex ground infrastructure and telephone lines, a satellite connection allows you to connect to any area covered by the KA-SAT satellite bidirectionally via the airwaves.
The KA-SAT Satellite
The KA-SAT satellite is an innovative cutting-edge satellite and is the only one in Europe that operates in the Ka band. Due to its configuration with 82 independent spotbeams, the KA-SAT satellite provides a connection that is always active and efficient.
What is its coverage area?
The KA-SAT satellite has a very wide coverage area which guarantees an efficient, reliable and competitive broadband connection across Europe and beyond, to North Africa and the Middle East.
Simple, fast and convenient internet satellite
Characterised by its capacity to transmit data, sound, speech and images, high speed is synonymous with user-friendly internet. It allows for fast and simple access to the countless possibilities offered by the “world-wide web”: email or document exchange, chat, webcam conversations, browsing of millions of web sites, online purchasing, banking, viewing photos, films, clips, videos or TV programmes, etc.
Films can be downloaded in seconds !
A high-speed internet connection up to 50 Mbps* (Megabits per second) allows you to download a music clip in just 2 to 3 seconds, a video clip in less than 30 seconds and a two-hour film in only a quarter of an hour, or one hour for HD (High Definition) format.
*Mbps: Megabits per second is the unit of measurement for the theoretical speed of data transfer between the internet and a computer. It corresponds to the number of information units (bits) transferred in each second and is measured in millions (Mbps).
The solution comes from the sky!
Euro Broadband is a high-speed satellite internet access service “for everyone everywhere”. It offers connections with download speeds up to 50 Mbps and upload speeds of 6 Mbps, largely equivalent to the performance of ADSL, for homes unable to connect to the Internet, wherever they are located. The digital divide is over, thanks to Euro Broadband; now everyone can have high speed internet access. No need for a telephone line and no additional software to install. An individual satellite dish and a modem connected to your computer are all you need to connect to the “web” and no longer be a victim of the digital divide, or cut off from the world.
