SES has become the first operator to offer a satellite broadband service with download speeds of up to 20Mbps for the French market.
The new service uses Ka-band capacity on SES’ Astra 2F satellite and is available with immediate via France Telecom-Orange’s satellite broadband affiliate NordNet.
The broadband package, called Internet Satellite JET, features download speeds of up to 20Mbps, VoIP telephony and HD TV from €29.90 per month.
Patrick Biewer, managing director of SES Broadband Services, said, “SES is again pioneering satellite broadband services in Europe, being the first operator to offer equal features to terrestrial services and at a highly competitive price. We are convinced that the new Ka-band offer presents a great solution for users in remote locations and will significantly drive product sales in France.”
