Eutelsat Konnect, a cutting-edge satellite
To further improve the performance of satellite internet, a new satellite has been developed and will be launched in 2020. The project is being carried out by Eutelsat with the support of Thalès Alenia Space. The result of a year and a half of research, this latest-generation satellite with 100% electric propulsion weighs 3.6 tonnes and is designed to last 15 years. This is a major achievement which will enable the development of this technology to be taken further, particularly in terms of speed and capacity, which will enable us to meet the ever-increasing need for data exchange.
For Eutelsat, the Eutelsat Konnect satellite represents a further step forward for the company's customers. Eutelsat is committed to constantly improving the quality of satellite broadband and to ensuring that the technology is widely available in Africa at prices that are affordable and adapted to all profiles.
