Technical specifications, with a guaranteed hi-link availability and good satellite coverage, were important factors in our decision. We were also very impressed with Eutelsats high level of commitment to technical support and we expect to launch our service in 1 December.

Eutelsat commercial director ,Olivier Milliès-Lacroix said, It is a great achievement to have satisfied the requirements of Al Harbi Telecom which has longstanding experience in VSat technology and supplying satellite-based communications networks around the world. This contract further consolidates Eutelsats ability to address requirements in the dynamic Middle East market where satellites clearly have a unique competitive advantage through their ubiquitous coverage and ability to provide direct connectivity to other regions of the world.
