For the past 50 years the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the largest government space agency in the world has empowered Indian communities and businesses via satellite.

In the last two decades, SES has had an important relationship with ISRO India in helping to meet the communications needs of India. Today, SES provides satellite capacity into India via ISRO using six geostationary (GEO) satellites – NSS-12, SES-8, NSS-6, SES-7, SES-9 and SES-12. These satellites host two of India’s major DTH platforms that are viewed by some 30 million satellite TV subscribers. We also provide capacity to five of India’s major VSAT providers, serving more than 200,000 VSAT terminals spread across the length and breadth of India. These VSAT providers use our capacity for banking, enterprise, education, telemedicine and e-government networks serving even the most remote parts of India. We are proud to have helped India grow its vibrant broadcasting sector, and to have helped increase rural connectivity, and we have not stood still.
