The huge high-throughput satellite (HTS), alongside two littler HTS satellites GSAT-19 and GSAT-29 propelled prior (by ISRO from Srihsrihkota) will commence viable satellite-based broadband administrations in remote, up to this point revealed provincial zones of the nation. These and a couple of additionally forthcoming HTS armada will likewise imaginatively empower the utilization of the prevalent and proficient Ka recurrence band.

The lift off of GSAT-11 and a South Korean co-traveler satellite on European pace vehicle Ariane 5 VA246 was watched and cheered by the Chairman of Indian Space Research Organization K. Sivan.

Empowering in-flight Internet and town web administrations are the administration's different objectives. By empowering country rapid availability the HTS satellite likewise guarantees to connect the urban-provincial computerized partition. 

The space organization depicted GSAT-11 as a "precursor in the arrangement of cutting edge correspondence satellites with multi-spot shaft reception apparatus inclusion" over the territory and islands. "GSAT-11 will assume a fundamental job in giving broadband administrations the nation over. It will likewise give a stage to show new age applications." 

The ISRO Master Control Facility at Hassan in Karnataka instantly took control of the satellite and discovered it healthy. The rocket presently circumvents Earth in a brief oval circle.

Pre-dispatch, URSC's Dr. Kunhikrishnan said the rocket has the most elevated number of five correspondence radio wires at any point utilized in an ISRO satellite and biggest sun oriented boards and payload boards. 

D.K. Das, Director of the Space Applications Center in Ahmedabad which provided the basic GSAT-11 payloads, said 90% of the equipment was from Indian industry. Four interconnected doors in four urban communities would be set up to empower the administrations. 

2 more from Arianespace 

Stéphane Israël, Arianespace's Chief Executive Officer and gathering Executive Vice-President, said two more GSATs, 31 and 30, would be circled from Guiana. GSAT-31 would go up first in mid 2019.

It additionally holds the most astounding number of 590 business satellite dispatches to date around the world.
