Each beam, operating on its own is capable of providing 5MHz of bandwidth capacity, complementing additional bandwidth on the ground and each beam operates in opposite circular polarisation. In its current configuration it delivers coverage across much of the EU landmass from two operational beams. The satellite has a lifetime of 15 years and is located at 10°E in geostationary orbit.
