German retail group signs up for Eutelsat broadband offering

German electronics retailer Euronics has teamed up with satellite operators Eutelsat and its broadband internet partner getinternet to sell satellite broadband services in Germany.

Euronics Deutschland federates 1,700 independent electrical retailers with 1,900 outlets across the country.

The agreement will enable Euronics retailers to sell its Tooway satellite broadband service, which delivers 20Mbps downstream and 6Mbps upstream via satellite.

Tooway is provided via Eutelsat’s dedicated Ka-band satellite, KA-SAT.

Peter Koßmann, head of telecommunications at Euronics Deutschland, said: “We see many customers in rural areas or on the outskirts of cities and large towns penalised by insufficient broadband speeds. The innovative satellite service we are adding to our consumer electronics portfolio allows us to resolve this problem, bringing customers broadband wherever they are. Tooway can also be used to receive TV channels with the highest picture quality on smart TV and OLEDs simply with the addition of a small piece of hardware to the dish.”
