Eurobroadband Infrastructure (EBI), a subsidiary of Eutelsat, is launching a preferred partner program for the distribution of capacity on its KA-SAT satellite. The program aims to revitalize the distribution of KA-SAT capacity to boost the deployment of internet access via satellite, further bridging the digital divide, in line with the European Union (EU) 2020 targets.
EBI will provide satellite network capacity as well as assistance with subscriber premises equipment and installation and marketing to support the Konnect brand. Preferred partners will actively promote and sell Konnect satellite broadband services and assist subscriber management-related activities. Selected partners already signed up to the program include Bigblu Broadband, SkyDSL, Skycyl/Nimvox in Spain, ESER Telekom in Turkey, and Nortis in Morocco.
“With this program we are reinforcing our relationship with key distribution partners through a shared approach aimed at bringing broadband quickly and effectively to consumers across Europe and beyond,” said Eurobroadband Infrastructure Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Catherine Carde. “Together we will accelerate the delivery of the fastest available residential satellite broadband service packages. The launch of this program also completes the overhaul of EBI’s distribution strategy and notably the relaunch of the wholesale model, focused on selected specialist distribution partners and major telcos.”
