FCC tells Eutelsat that Intelsat already called dibs on U.S. orbital slot - SpaceNews.com May 2018
"The U.S. Federal Communications Commission rejected a Eutelsat application for a satellite that would use the same spectrum as one planned by Intelsat. Eutelsat and Intelsat both told the FCC they wanted to field a new telecom satellite near 133 degrees west longitude to serve the U.S. market. Intelsat filed its application last May, some eight months ahead of Eutelsat, however. "

"Eutelsat, which says its filings at the United Nation’s International Telecommunication Union predate any filings supporting Intelsat’s Galaxy-15R, has not given up on securing the rights to the slot."

Eutelsat Does the Math on Reducing Future Satellite Costs - SpaceNews.com Dec 2015
"The total capital cost of placing a telecommunications satellite into geostationary orbit is made up of the satellite’s construction, accounting for 50 percent of the total; 30 percent for the launch vehicle; and the rest reserved for insurance charges and diverse expenses."

"[Eutelsat said] it must reduce its satellite costs — construction, launch, insurance and ground segment — to 1 million euros ($1.1 million) per gigabit per second of throughput."

Eutelsat Exec Discusses Possibility of Full LEO Constellation - Via Satellite - Mar 2018
"Eutelsat’s LEO for Objects (ELO) spacecraft will be used to assess the potential of LEO satellites in providing narrowband connectivity for objects. Jean-Hubert Lenotte, Eutelsat’s chief strategy officer, spoke to Via Satellite about the plans for the satellite, scheduled to launch in 2019, and how this could lead to Eutelsat looking to have a full constellation in LEO at some point in the future."

"We are targeting one specific application which is the Internet of Things (IOT) and we have chosen to use a LEO satellite because we think LEO will be well suited for such applications. Indeed IOT requires low bit rate connectivity and does not require a high concentration of capacity, meaning small satellites can be used. Therefore, we think there might be a business case for LEO in IOT."

"The satellite will be launched in the first half of 2019."

"For video, we only really see GEO satellites serving this market. For broadband, we don’t see today the potential opportunity for LEO satellites."

Eutelsat's Belmer: Video Still Holds Key to Successful Future | Via Satellite - January / February 2018 -
VIA SATELLITE: What would you highlight is the single biggest competitive threat to Eutelsat’s business over the next few years?

Belmer: The biggest competitive threat to our business is the indirect pressure we are seeing from fiber deployment. In the past, we used to consider competition as something between rival satellite operators. But today, this is less and less the case as the strategies of major satellite operators are going in very different directions.

Inmarsat On Track With EAN Roll-Out, Despite Challenges | Aviation Week Oct 2017
"Inmarsat still expects the European Aviation Network (EAN) to be operational by the end of the year, despite an attempt by rival satellite operators to block it. "

"Inmarsat and telecommunications company Deutsche Telekom are developing the broadband offering, which uses both satellite and Long-Term Evolution (LTE)-based ground networks to provide high-speed inflight internet over Europe. International Airlines Group (IAG) became the launch customer for the service in March, and has indicated plans to equip more than 300 of its airlines’ aircraft to use it."

"But two other satellite companies are asking regulators to stop the EAN roll-out, claiming Inmarsat is misusing its grant of 2GHz spectrum by primarily deploying an air-to-ground network.
California-based ViaSat filed a complaint against the European Commission (EC) in April, which Eutelsat joined in July. The two companies have a partnership to offer broadband services in the European market."
