Russia’s state satellite operator Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) has partnered with Eutelsat for the commercialisation of broadband and data network services in Russia.

The companies will use Eutelsat's new KA-SAT High Throughput Satellite. Launched in December 2010 and on track to shortly go into full commercial service, KA-SAT is a pan-European infrastructure which will support the broadband service provided by Eutelsat’s Skylogic affiliate.

According to the partnership, RSCC will be the main partner of Skylogic to commercialise Tooway services in European regions of the Russian Federation.
