The Eutelsat W3A satellite information page: Strategically placed at 7 degrees East, over the Gulf of Guinea, Eutelsat's W3A satellite covers the whole of sub-Saharan Africa and provides direct connectivity to Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. W3A is one of Eutelsat's most sophisticated satellites, combining Ku- and Ka-band frequencies and on-board multiplexing (SKYPLEX). It provides pan-European and pan-African coverage while guaranteeing connectivity between the two continents. In addition to bringing Africa its first SKYPLEX on-board multiplexing solution, W3A also brings to Africa key applications such as distance-learning, telemedicine, Internet access and much more.

The Eurovision European Service provides end-to-end digital MPEG 4:2:2 connectivity within the European Broadcasting Area, including the Atlantic Islands, North Africa, the Middle East, the Persian Gulf and Central Asia.  Services are offered over three networks: the prime network is based over the Eutelsat W3A satellite at 7 East and it is fully restorable over the Eutelsat W1 satellite at 10 East.

The Space news feed reports successful transition: 17 May 2004 Eutelsat has announced that its new W3A satellite was successfully brought into full commercial service at 7 East in the nights of May 15 to 16 and May 16 to 17 with the seamless transfer of all traffic to the new satellite from W3.
