Eutelsat, News, International News


Eutelsat and its Skylogic subsidiary have signed a six-year, 20 million euro ($29 million; AED106.5m) distribution agreement with Egyptian VSAT provider Egyptsat, which will enable the company to use Eutelsat’s Tooway satellite service via the Ka-Sat satellite, reports Satellite Today.

Egyptsat, a licensed VSAT operator for offshore and domestic oil companies, will use the Tooway service to deliver broadband connectivity to its users that are beyond reach of terrestrial or wireless networks across Egypt. The company said that Tooway will complement its product portfolio by offering competitive prices for small offices and home users in industrial and economic centers in the north of the country, who can be served through Ka-Sat’s spot beam.

"Tooway is the best fit for Egypt's new era, with Internet users increasing from 21 million to 25.4 million just after the 25th January revolution. With a price comparable to ADSL, Tooway is the pass code for this new era. The service is expected to meet the significant demand in the Egyptian territory and the region, where too many places are in deep need for high speed Internet at reasonable cost," Egyptsat CEO Mohamed Elghamry said in a statement.
