EUTELSAT 5 West A is a high-powered spacecraft, providing an exceptional range of connectivity combinations with its mix of Ku and C-band frequencies.

The satellite delivers two-way broadband internet access, broadcast services and corporate networks to large audiences. It also plays a key role in the network infrastructure being deployed across Europe and the Mediterranean Basin for the digital switchover, distributing digital terrestrial television (DTT) signals to head-end transmitters.

EUTELSAT 5 West A features a Euro-Mediterranean superbeam coverage, a unique pan-Atlantic widebeam coverage encompassing the Americas, Africa and Europe, and a steerable antenna that can be pointed over any one of these regions, including the Middle East. It also offers C-band capacity for the pan-African market and Caribbean area.
