Our Fleet of Satellites

We launched our first high-throughput satellite in 2010. Today, we operate a fleet of 4 Ka-band satellites that provide extensive capacity across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.


Launched in April 2018, HYLAS 4 doubles our capacity over EMEA. Using the latest Ka-band technology, it has 64 fixed beams serving Africa and Europe, as well as four independent steerable beams able to be steered anywhere visible on the Earth’s disk from 33.5˚W.


Launched in August 2019, HYLAS 3 is a steerable cluster of 8 beams that can be steered to anywhere within the 31˚ E coverage zone, providing flexible and high throughput connectivity across EMEA and part of Asia.


Launched in 2012, HYLAS 2 uses high-throughput Ka-band technology. The spacecraft has 24 fixed beams and one steerable beam, addressing markets across EMEA.


HYLAS 1 was Avanti’s first satellite, which launched in 2010. The spacecraft has 8 high-throughput Ka-band beams and is complemented by a Ku-band broadcast capability with fibre enhanced coverage.

The Avanti advantage
