Eutelsat to Provide Satellite Broadband to Telekom Slovenije
Eutelsat Communications is partnering with Slovenia’s Telekom Slovenije to offer high-speed satellite broadband to the almost 90,000 homes that remain unserved by broadband networks in rural areas of the country. The new consumer satellite broadband service provided by Eutelsat’s Ka-Sat satellite will operate with a small (77cm) satellite dish and modem.
Ka-Sat has a total capacity of 90 Gbps for satellite-delivered broadband services across Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. The satellite is part of a communications infrastructure that includes an on-ground network of eight main gateways across Europe connected to the Internet by a fiber backbone ring.
