HYLAS 4 was launched by an Ariane 5 rocket on 5 April 2018 and was manufactured by Orbital ATK (now Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems). It boasts sixty-four 28GHz fixed beams covering Africa and parts of Europe as well as four independent steerable beams ready to serve Africa, South America or Europe - all operated from five Gateway Earth Stations.

This High Throughput Satellite (HTS) is the latest addition to Avanti’s fleet. Through this partnership, Freedomsat extends their Ka-band coverage of the continent of Africa and can offer lower costs per bit of bandwidth - bringing the freedom of high-speed and affordable satellite internet to more people.

Not only is this an exciting development in the wider satellite telecommunications industry, it is a proud moment in Freedomsat’s history.
