China Satcom: Fully Open a New Era of my country's Satellite Internet Application Services

my country's first high-throughput satellite with a capacity of over 100 Gbps, Zhongxing 26, will be launched in early 2023. This satellite is my country's first high-throughput satellite whose overall performance in system design and operation services is comparable to the international level. The launch will fully open a new era of my country's satellite Internet application services.
The Zhongxing-26 might be launched from Xichang by CZ-3B or Wenchang b一CZ-7A.

The article https://www.cast.cn/news/7611 from Jan 26 confirmed that ZX-26 is already at Xichang:

在西昌卫星发射中心,中星26号卫星试验队的春节值班人员严密监测卫星状态,同时进行加注管路保压检查、卫星贮存场地巡检,兢兢业业,严慎细实。
At the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, the staff on duty for the Spring Festival of the ChinaSat 26 satellite test team closely monitored the status of the satellite. At the same time, they carried out pressure maintenance inspections on the filling pipelines and patrol inspections on the satellite storage sites. They were conscientious and meticulous.
