Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an analysis of the European Telecommunication Satellite Organisation (EUTELSAT) before, during and after its restructuring. While European states played a critical role in the establishment of International Telecommunications Satellite Organisation (INTELSAT), they were aware of the potential of satellite telecommunications and were keen to place the European industry in a position to benefit from this new technological adventure. Over the years, EUTELSAT had to face increasing competition in the field of satellite telecommunications. EUTELSAT's pricing policy changed significantly as a result of the restructuring. The decisions taken at the time of restructuring have proved to be right, in particular the decision to amend the original EUTELSAT Convention to accommodate the change of structure and to enshrine the provisions and principles of the Amended EUTELSAT Convention into the Arrangement signed between Eutelsat S.A. and EUTELSAT intergovernmental organization (IGO).

Keywords: European industry; EUTELSAT Intergovernmental organization (IGO); International Telecommunications Satellite Organisation (INTELSAT)
