I will need to check but I think it has a higher spatial resolution, perhaps 0.5km. There will be many things the Americans will get (1 min RSS, lightning mapper etc) that will be of little interest in Europe.

I expect with the size of datas nowadays that Eumetsat will need to be careful even with 2 transponders. For example the huge sentinel data will double when Sentinel 3B comes on stream.
