Launch Details


Hispasat 1D is co-located in geostationary orbit at 30 degrees West with the Hispasat 1A, 1B and 1C satellites. The new satellite will consolidate Hispasat's positions thanks to a significant increase in the operational capacities of its fleet (+30%) over their coverage area, spanning Europe, North and South America, North Africa and the Middle East. Hispasat 1D also enables Hispasat to ensure continuity of service for telecommunications and direct digital TV services, while boosting capacity for broadband Internet, interactive services and multimedia services.
