SES has launched its satellite broadband service with download speeds of up to 20 Mbit/s for consumers in France. The new service uses Ka-band capacity on SES’s Astra 2F satellite and is available with immediate effect via France Telecom-Orange’s satellite broadband affiliate NordNet.
The broadband package called Internet Satellite JET features download speeds of up to 20 Mbit/s, VoIP telephony and HD TV from €29.90 per month. NordNet uses new generation end-user terminals provided by Gilat Satellite Technologies.
“We are delighted that we can now offer high-speed Internet connections with download speeds of up to 20 Mbit/s to households anywhere in France,” said Francis Piet, CEO of NordNet. “Thanks to the new Ka-band capacity on SES’s ASTRA 2F satellite and SES Broadband Services’ years of experience in the satellite broadband market, we are certain that our new service package, Internet Satellite JET, will be a success in France.”
