Eutelsat Boosts Capacity
Eutelsat has brought new capacity into service for broadband Internet access and DTH satellite television broadcasting in western and central Europe. The company is delivering services at 33 degrees East through the EUROBIRD
- 2 satellite. EUROBIRD* 2 is a Ku-band satellite. According to Eutelsat, the satellite proximity to EUROBIRD* 1 at 28.5 degrees East, which serves six million digital satellite homes in the UK, opens new synergies for ISPs and broadcasters. With a standard dual-feed installation, all households already equipped to receive EUROBIRD* 1 will be able to access broadband Internet services simultaneously direct from EUROBIRD* 2.
