Hopefully Eutelsat Quantum will go to 5 west.

It still looks like a back up satellite will be required @ 5 west to fulfil the transponder contracts assigned to 5 west,
The move by Mediasat to 9B @ 9 east may only be a temporary measure,
Eutelsat Quantum was built for this specific purpose to back up or replace a damaged satellite.

Default Eutelsat quantum will be ready for launch 3rd qtr 2020

After consulting Eutelsat as there is no confirmation available regards to the eventual satellite position that Quantum will occupy at this moment in time,

EUTELSAT QUANTUM heralds a new era of commercial satellite service, enabling users in government, mobility and data markets to actively define and shape the performance and reach they need from a satellite.

Communications on the move: dynamic beam shaping and vessel-tracking capabilities can be optimised for power and throughput as required by maritime, aeronautical and land-based transportation,

This satellite can operate at any location on the satellite belt & duplicate any footprint of the satellite it replaces.

Eutelsat have had to replan their satellite re-locations due to the failure of Eutelsat 5°West B solar panel so only 47% of the satellite capacity is available,

Signing a contract to move Eutelsat 7A to 139.2°west was probably not a good idea on reflection,

But help may be at hand with Eutelsat Quantum that will be capable of duplicating what E5WB cannot @ 5°west,

This may allow E5WB to move to another location 12.5°West ?
We will have to wait & see

So in short Eutelsat Still remain Clueless and Brain dead !!
They are now pretty much forced to put Quantum @ 5°West
due to failures to fix small issues which has now become an urgent emergency mission !! 12.5°West seems to be put on the proverbial Long Finger
