Intelsat 906 (or IS-906[1]) is a communications satellite operated by Intelsat.


Intelsat 906 was launched by an Ariane 4 rocket from Guiana Space Centre, French Guiana, at 06:44 UTC on September 6, 2002.[5]

Capacity and coverage

It will broadcasting, business services, direct-to-home TV broadcasting, telecommunications and VSAT networks to Europe, Asia, and Australia through its 72 C band 22 Ku band transponders after parking over 64 degrees east longitude. It displaces Intelsat 804 which will then be moved to 176 degrees east to handle the increased cross-Atlantic demand.[5]
