The Union Cabinet has given its approval for the procurement of launch services and realisation of ground segment for GSAT-11 spacecraft at a cost of Rs 1,117 crore (Rs 11.17 billion).

GSAT-11 will be ready for launch by the end of 2016.

Considering the 5,600 kg lift-off mass, the satellite will be launched using procured launch vehicle outside the country.

The ground segment is being realised to address rural communication requirements.

This will enable early deployment of GSAT-11 in order to augment Ku-band capacity, which can be utilised for various services like VSATS, broadband, etc.

The ground segment of GSAT-11 will enable the utilisation of a small portion of the bandwidth for societal services apart from providing in-orbit testing support.

It will also provide a high throughput capacity of about 10 Gbps to render broadband connectivity especially in rural areas.

GSAT-11, a communication satellite with 32 high-power spot beams for providing high-bandwidth VSAT communication, is currently under development at DOS/ISRO facilities.

Now a days major satellites makers are using Ka band for broadband transmission & ISRO will use Ku band ? So there is very little chance to allot it for dth providers.

Both Gsat-11 satellite & GSLV Mark III are experimental ones. But GSLV Mark III is more immature as it is not tested with it's full design configuration. So ISRO don't want to risk with a untested launch vehicle.
