The FCC will be voting to approve several companies with new non-geostationary satellite constellations.
Viasat (California) will only launch 20 medium-Earth-orbit satellites instead of 24 as per their original plan.
Kepler will create a new satellite system for the Internet of Things.
LeoSat will offer high-speed connectivity for enterprises and underserved communities.
Both will be approved according to the FCC chairman.
They will approve requests of SpaceX and TeleSat Canada to expand the frequencies they can use so that their fleets of low Earth orbit satellites can offer even better broadband service.
Telesat will launch 117 satellites into low-earth-orbit. These will be about ~1,000 km from earth which is ~35 times closer than traditional satellites. They will seamlessly integrate with terrestrial networks. The global network will deliver fiber quality speed (Gbps links; low latency) anywhere on earth. Telesat has worldwide rights to ≈4 GHz of Ka-band spectrum that is ideal for high-performance broadband networks. Telesat’s Phase 1 LEO launched successfully on January 12, 2018. Project plans are moving forward aggressively and start of global service is targeted for 2022.
SpaceX is launching 4,425 satellites.
