21st November, 2020 (9 Comments)

European space firm Eutelsat has released details of what their new KONNECT based satellite packages will look like for UK consumers, which will offer a top download speed of 100Mbps and “unlimited” data usage. But admittedly there are a few caveats to consider.

Space company OneWeb, which is owned by a consortium of the UK Government and Indian conglomerate Bharti Global (here), has today revealed that they will launch the next batch of 36 high-speed broadband capable Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellites into orbit on 17th December 2020.

European space operator Eutelsat has today confirmed that their new all-electric (propulsion) broadband satellite, KONNECT, which was launched into Geostationary Orbit (7° East) around the Earth in January 2020 (here), has finally entered into commercial service and should soon be available from ISPs in the UK and EU.

Good news, SpaceX has unofficially revealed how much they intend to charge open beta customers of their new Starlink Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite broadband service. Bad news, it’ll set you back $99 (c.£75) per month for the service rental and $499 (c.£380) for the ground terminal, tripod and router hardware.

The Satellite and Terrestrial Network for 5G (SaT5G) project, supported by various UK telecoms operators like BT, Avanti and €8.3m of EU funding, has for the first time successfully managed to integrate a standard commercially available 5G core (mobile broadband) network into a live Satellite network.

The US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York has officially approved the £800m ($1bn) sale of OneWeb to the UK Government and Bharti Global (here), which paves the way for the satellite ISP to continue creating a constellation of 650 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites for ultrafast low-latency broadband.

Financial analyst firm Cowen has attempted to predict the capability of SpaceX’s new mega constellation of small Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Starlink satellites, which they claim should eventually be able to serve 485,000 simultaneous data streams in the USA with 100Mbps speeds or 1.5 million streams with over-subscription.

SpaceX has revealed the results from their most recent “official” testing of the new future mega constellation of small Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Starlink satellites, which they claim has now “shown super low latency” and download speeds “greater than 100Mbps” (Megabits per second).

27th August, 2020 (9 Comments)

The Head of Airbus US Space Systems, Debra Facktor, appears to have flatly rejected the idea that construction of OneWeb‘s new Low Earth Orbit (LEO) broadband satellites could in the future be moved from their $85m (£64m) facility in Florida (USA) and shifted over to the United Kingdom.

The original promise of “fibre-like” broadband speeds from SpaceX’s future mega constellation of small Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Starlink satellites may not materialise. A leak of early speedtests from beta customers in the USA point to “superfast” (30Mbps+), but not “ultrafast” (100Mbps+), levels of performance. Fine.. but not “fibre“.

The European operations of broadband ISP Bigblu (BBB Europe), which supplies various satellite and fixed wireless internet access services to consumers across the UK and parts of EU, has been acquired by satellite operator Eutelsat for a consideration of c.£38m (just as their new high speed Konnect satellite is due to enter service).

Online shopping giant Amazon has confirmed that they plan to invest over $10 billion (£7.60bn) in order to build their own mega constellation of 3,236 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites to rival SpaceX and OneWeb, which will aim to deliver ultrafast broadband to some of the poorest connected communities across the world.

New details of the beta trial for SpaceX’s forthcoming Starlink broadband service, which will be based off a vast constellation of compact Low Earth Orbit (LEO) spacecraft (satellite), have been leaked across the internet after they were discovered hidden within the company’s website.

New research from Point Topic has found that world fixed broadband subscribers grew by just 1.25% (13.9 million) in Q1 2020 to total 1.13 billion, but the main impact from COVID-19 won’t be understood until Q2 and Q3. Meanwhile almost every connection technology saw growth, except copper (ADSL etc.) lines that fell -10.3% year-on-year.

The Government and Indian conglomerate Bharti Global have today made a successful £800m ($1bn) bid to acquire the British-registered space company OneWeb, which will see the UK invest £400m ($500m) in order to help build a new global network of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites for ultrafast broadband and possibly GPS.

The UK Government will reportedly invest around £500m (equity) into British-registered space company OneWeb as part of a wider private-sector consortium bid. The firm has been busy building a global network of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites for ultrafast broadband, but as part of the deal it may have to deliver GPS too.
