Eutelsat has always been at the leading edge of high-speed satellite Internet

The history of satellite Internet for home broadband began in 2012 when Eutelsat became the first satellite Internet provider in Europe with the launch of our first satellite dedicated to high-speed Internet. 

Covering Ireland and 15 other countries in Europe and North Africa, Eutelsat enabled hundreds of thousands of homes and companies that suffered from poor connectivity to have an Internet connection similar to ADSL, offering an alternative to fibre broadband without having to wait for ground or mobile networks to be deployed.

Did you know?

36,000 km

Eutelsat KONNECT is a geostationary satellite: it’s in orbit 36,000 km above the Earth, which means it is orbiting at the same speed as our planet rotates, so it provides all of the covered zones with a fixed, superfast Internet connection. Technology and human engineering come together to offer high-performance connectivity.

75 Mbps

KONNECT is a High Throughput Satellite (HTS). It beams signal onto several zones to form the konnect coverage area. Average download speeds of up to 75 Mbps can be reached anywhere within this area. 


The satellite Internet dish and modem needed to receive konnect satellite Internet is worth hundreds of pounds. To make access to this technology easier, we provide this equipment at no charge, so a maximum number of people can connect to the Internet, wherever they may be, without having to pay a small fortune.
