The launch of satellite Hellas Sat 3 in 2017 marked the beginning of a new era, both for our company and our clients. Its enhanced payload allowed us to maintain and expand our DTH and telecom services that Hellas Sat 2 had been providing since 2003. With more than double Ku-Band transponders and with the addition of cross connectivity capabilities between Europe and Southern Africa. 
Hellas Sat 3 increased our business opportunities in Europe, the Middle East, and Southern Africa and allowed us to provide state-of-the-art satellite communications to our customers.
