Eutelsat Tooway for SFR

Eutelsat Communications has confirmed the signature of a far-reaching contract concluded between its Skylogic broadband affiliate and SFR, one of the leading telecommunications operators in France. SFR has selected Tooway to meet demand for broadband from its customers beyond ADSL coverage. Called the 'Satellite Internet Pack' the new service supplied by SFR uses capacity on Eutelsat's Hot Bird 6 satellite. It will be extended on Eutelsat's new-generation KA-SAT satellite whose launch is scheduled for end 2010.
