Deutsche Telekom has signed an agreement with Eutelsat to end the dispute around the use of satellite frequencies at 28.5 degrees East.
Eutelsat began talks with Telekom in 2011 and was seeking a clarification on how long it could use the orbital position that it shares with SES to broadcast programmes into the UK. Eutelsat was also seeking payment in accordance with the term of the agreement that it signed with Telekom.
A general settlement was reached on February 7, 2013, though the terms of the agreement have not yet been disclosed.
A spokesperson for Eutelsat said: “We believe it to be a satisfactory outcome”.
