At Hughes, the excitement is palpable. Work teams are now in final preparations for the launch of ECHOSTAR® XVII, the company’s next-generation Ka-band satellite with JUPITER™ high-throughput technology. Designed to deliver well in excess of 100 Gbps throughput, this powerful broadband satellite system is once again evidence of Hughes technology leadership and will bring high-speed Internet access to over 1.5 million consumer and small business subscribers of HughesNet® service in North America.
Scheduled for launch this summer from from the European Teleport in French Guiana by Arianespace, ECHOSTAR XVII’s capacity is equal to approximately 80 Ku-band satellites. Employing a multi-spot beam, bent-pipe architecture, the new geostationary satellite will expand the total capacity for HughesNet service to over 2 million in North America, which today at over 620,000 subscribers represents both the world’s largest consumer satellite Internet service and the largest Ka-band technology network.
Countdown... Three…Two…One… Look for up-to-the-minute details of this exciting satellite launch—coming your way this summer.
