??? NO! The reason why ZDF is broadcasting at a higher bit rate is that 
Eurosport and Euronews went off their transponder (to KDG transponder on 
23,5°). Bandwidth is a measure of frequency range, measured in hertz. 
This range has _not_ changed which would be rather difficult because 
frequencies on satellites are pretty fix. Also modulation, FEC and 
symbol rate have not been changed.
