SES Broadband Services today announced it has signed an agreement with German Internet Service Provider ORBITCOM to market its Astra Connect service.

Provided via Ka-band capacity on the recently launched SES’s satellite ASTRA 2E, Astra Connect delivers high-speed broadband across Europe.
ORBITCOM will provide the service to households in under-served areas in Germany where current broadband speeds are 2Mbit/s or less.

Six different options of Astra Connect service packages will be available to ORBITCOM customers, with prices depending on data volume.

The additional night option allows browsing without limit and without volume billing and is an integral part of any tariff. All packages have download speeds of up to 20Mbit/s and upload speeds of up to 2Mbit/s.

“The Internet has become an indispensable

part of our lives and yet high-speed broadband Internet access is still not the norm,” said Andreas Schmidt, CEO, ORBITCOM GmbH. “With the Astra Connect tariffs we can provide both casual surfers and usage-heavy home office operators Internet access that is directly tuned to their needs and usage patterns. For everyone, everywhere, this is crucial.”

ORBITCOM’s management team brings 25 years of experience in the retail, e-commerce and telecommunications markets, including launching emerging technologies. The company will bring this experience to the new partnership with SES Broadband Services.

“We are looking forward to working with ORBITCOM in Germany, a very important market for us. With the launch of ASTRA 2E we have expanded capacity and coverage for this market, allowing for further growth and connectivity for everyone, regardless of their location,” said Patrick Biewer, Managing Director of SES Broadband Services.
