India's heaviest satellite, GSAT-11, was successfully launched by an Ariane space rocket from the French Guiana in the early hours of Wednesday, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said.

GSAT-11 is expected to boost broadband services in the country.

Blasting off from the Ariane Launch Complex at Kourou, a French territory on the northeastern coast of South America at 2:07 am (IST), the Ariane-5 vehicle sent GSAT-11 into the orbit.

The satellite separated from the rocket after a 30-minute flight and went into a geosynchronous transfer orbit. Weighing about 5,854 kg, the GSAT-11 is the "heaviest" satellite built by ISRO.
