Eutelsat Group (ISIN: FR0010221234 - Euronext Paris / London Stock Exchange: ETL), announces that Sat One, is leveraging its OneWeb LEO constellation for the first-time activation of land-based services across Australia's remote northern and southern regions, maritime services in Australian waters, and commercial service in New Zealand.

Satellite service company Sat One and Eutelsat OneWeb have a multi-year, multi-million dollar agreement enabling Sat One to bring high-speed, low latency connectivity to its most remote customers. With Eutelsat OneWeb's LEO now operational in Australia and New Zealand, Sat One has begun providing services to enterprises, including mine sites, and remote communities as well as maritime customers.

"Today heralds a new chapter for connectivity, tailored to Australasia's unique landscapes and seascapes," remarked Daniel Fairbairn, Chief Executive Officer of Sat One. "Our agreement with Eutelsat OneWeb enables us to lead the market in providing enterprise grade, resilient, high-speed, low-latency LEO services that stand up to the harsh outback, the wet tropics, and New Zealand's freezing conditions, as well as the demanding marine environments. We're ensuring that enterprises remain connected and competitive no matter how remote or challenging their operations. Sat One is the One company that customers turn to for Enterprise LEO."

Cyril Dujardin, Co-President of Eutelsat Group's Connectivity Business Unit said, "We are delighted to announce the launch of our LEO services for customers in Australia and New Zealand. As a trusted connectivity provider, Sat One understands the complex needs of modern businesses and maritime operations. We are excited by the start of these services and looking forward to building on our partnership with Sat One."

The activation follows the launch last month of Eutelsat OneWeb LEO backhaul in Australia by the Australian telecom operator, Telstra.
