New Tooway(TM) packages from Eutelsat offer consumers Europe's fastest 
satellite broadband speeds, unlimited data download and lower pricing 
Paris, 31 January 2013 - Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) today
announced a new range of Tooway(TM) packages delivering the fastest
satellite-based consumer broadband speeds in Europe, unlimited data download
usage day and night and more competitive pricing. Designed to offer high speed
broadband to everyone today, these next generation Tooway(TM) services will
satisfy even the most demanding Internet users - further closing the digital
divide for consumers. 
The new packages will ensure that whatever their location, digitally deprived
homes and homeworkers in the EU can instantly access the benefits of high speed
broadband, including for applications such as film downloads, heavy file 
uploads and video chat that are now standard user expectations. Up to 
30 million homes in the footprint of the KA-SAT satellite, that delivers 
Tooway(TM), are still waiting for quality broadband connectivity. 
The new packages, called Tooway(TM) S, M, L and XL, will initially be available
through service providers in France, Spain, Italy, Germany and the UK from
February, and will offer across the board download speeds of up to 20 Mbps and
upload speeds of up to 6 Mbps (excepting entry level service), making it the
fastest consumer satellite broadband service in Europe. The packages will be
rolled-out to other European countries in the coming months. The service
operates with a small (77cm) easy-to-install satellite dish and modem and is
delivered by KA-SAT, Europe's most powerful satellite. 
To address growing demand for increased data allowances for video and 
multimedia services, Eutelsat is also introducing a true unlimited data 
service, called Tooway(TM) Absolute, for the first 20,000 customers across 
Europe. Customers subscribing to the L and XL service will also be entitled to 
uncapped data usage overnight, allowing video and large files to be downloaded 
without impacting daytime data allowances. Eutelsat is also introducing for 
service providers a recommended monthly rental fee for the dish and modem to 
simplify access to Tooway(TM). 
Jean-François Fenech, General Manager of Eutelsat's Broadband Business Unit,
said: "These new Tooway(TM) packages are another huge step forward in making
universal high speed broadband an immediate reality for Europe. The fastest
speeds and most generous data packages at the best competitive rates can be
delivered in a matter of days, regardless of location. The outlook for 
consumers in Europe 's most digitally deprived areas just got much brighter." 
Eutelsat's portfolio of Tooway(TM) services provides consumers and home-office
workers with an always-on Internet service, which is triple-play ready with 
full compatibility for Direct to Home (DTH) television services and Voice over 
IP solutions. 
Eutelsat's KA-SAT, with a total capacity of 90 Gbps, is transforming the market
for satellite- delivered broadband services. The satellite forms the 
cornerstone of a state-of-the-art communications infrastructure which includes 
a sophisticated on-ground network of eight main gateways across Europe that are
connected to the Internet by a fibre backbone ring.
