Eutelsat is to deploy its Eutelsat 33A satellite from 33° East to 31° East for Türksat in May 2014 to operate under its network filings.

It will continue to provide services at 33° East using the Eutelsat 33B satellite, which was redeployed to this position last month.

The Turkish satellite operator has signed an agreement to strengthen satellite resources and services in Turkey.

It currently operates two satellites at the 42° East orbital location and will launch Turksat 4A in Q1-2014 to 42° East and Türksat 4B in Q2-2014 to 50° East.

Türksat collaborates with Eutelsat on satellite broadband services for Turkey so that users anywhere can benefit from a quality Internet experience," said Ozkan Dalbay, Türksat CEO.
