Looks like it's official - earlier than we had thought also:
Latest PR
It is also official that the next mission is Intelsat 1002 at 1W
they have information here too ->> MEV-1: A look back at Intelsat's groundbreaking journey | Intelsat

"Intelsat intends to partner with Northrop Grumman again on a second Mission Extension Vehicle later this year, which will service a different Intelsat satellite, Intelsat 1002."

This info was from a good source

On 6 April these two satellites exchanged.
I am waiting for new maps for the IS-901 from Intelsat.
maps are still not published.

According today's info at FCC, soon IS-907 will move aside a bit, from 27.5°W to 27.6°W.
I think since this month, the satellite also is allowed to become inclined.

For the moment let me take the laughingstock role and report this...
NO SIGNAL at all in Northern Greece on 1.30m and probably even 4.0m :cool::p
Are there any other reports from Greece further south? Is there anyone receiving this satellite?

IS-907 is at graveyard altitude, but it may also be a fast drift for redeployment!
@Feedsat_DXer thought a while ago, IS-907 could be redeployed over the Pacific.
Intelsat ephemeris page is still updating IS-907, mentioning the 27.6°W location but that may change.

So, I sketched the old footprint exactly as it covered the continent and moved it above the UK centering the spot there. Perhaps this is quite indicative of the current situation. This footprint is even tighter than 907's!
