Avanti's state-of-the-art Ka-band earth stations are located at Goonhilly and Lands End in Cornwall, UK. Both sites are equipped with Hughes Network Systems hubs, building upon the extensive Ka-band experience gained from its American operations. The two sites have fully diverse and redundant fibre optic links to the Internet through London's Telehouse East. Hubs from other vendors will be added in due course.
