GSat-30 was tested at 80.9°E, and is now at 83.0°E and has already taken over services from Insat-4B.
Insat-4B started drifting 0.4°E/day and also starts becoming inclined.

Insat-4B has arrived already at 85.5°E, probably just as slot reservation, it is listed at ITU SNL.

No progress yet with Eutelsat Konnect, with regards to inclination that is still 6.1° from the start.

It appears Eutelsat Konnect is not going to be tested at planned final location 14.0°E.
The satellite has now arrived at about 7.25°E, with still a bit of inclination (0.17°) to be corrected.

Orange Telecom have contracted the entire capacity of Konnect that covers France


Interesting that the agreement only covers until Konnect VHTS goes into service - then customers will be migrated onto that bird.
