At Coollink.ng we are very excited and proud to be with Eutelsat in French Guiana this coming Tuesday for the lift-off of EUTELSAT KONNECT.

Our partnership with Eutelsat has truly transformed the satellite broadband market in Nigeria for better more affordable and faster Internet connectivity available anywhere.  


This brand new very high throughput satellite will bring more capacity and new connectivity solutions in Nigeria and the whole of Africa.


New-generation High Throughput Satellite for Europe and Africa


LAUNCH: 16/01/2020. Launch window opens at 22:05 CET

CONSTRUCTION: Thales Alenia Space

Eutelsat has ordered a new-generation High Throughput Satellite offering unprecedented operational flexibility. To be launched in 2020, the all-electric satellite will be the first to use Thales Alenia Space's new Spacebus Neo platform.

This high-capacity broadband satellite will deliver significant resources for broadband services across Europe and Africa and set a new benchmark for flexibility in High Throughput Satellites.

Providing 75 Gbps of capacity across a network of 65 spotbeams, which together provide quasi-complete coverage of Sub-Saharan Africa, the satellite will address direct-to-user consumer and enterprise broadband services using dishes from approximately 75 cm. It will also be used for community networks connected to Wi-Fi hotspots, mobile phone backhauling and rural connectivity.
