SpaceX’s Starlink service, which delivers ultrafast low latency broadband across the world via a mega constellation of satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO), is reportedly one of several operators that may be “ close to striking a deal” to secure some of Vodafone UK’s radio spectrum to help boost their network capacity.

British-registered satellite company OneWeb, which is busy deploying a large constellation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites for ultrafast low-latency broadband provision, has received a second investment boost – worth $165m (c.£120m) – from rival operator Eutelsat that raises their stake from 17.6% to 22.9%.

The CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk, has announced that the Starlink service, which delivers ultrafast low latency broadband across the world via a mega constellation of satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO), will finally leave its long-running beta phase and get a full commercial launch in October 2021. But don’t expect too many changes, yet.

SpaceX has this morning launched another batch of 51 new Starlink ultrafast broadband satellites into Low Earth Orbit (LEO), which unlike prior launches are the first to adopt the new v1.5 platform design that includes inter satellite laser links to help boost performance, coverage and reliability.

OneWeb, which is part owned by the UK Government, has confirmed that their global network of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) based broadband satellites is now compatible with the Kymeta u8 flat panel user terminal. A test in France was also able to achieve download speeds of over 200Mbps and uploads of 40Mbps “over repeated testing.”

The President of SpaceX, Gwynne Shotwell, has announced that the expensive terminal equipment (i.e. dish, mount and router), which ships to UK, USA and European customers who order an ultrafast broadband service via their Starlink constellation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, is to get significantly cheaper by the end of 2021.

Customer reports from across the world suggest that SpaceX’s new Starlink constellation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) ultrafast broadband satellites has suffered a major service outage today, which appears to have started just after 1pm UK time and is affected users in the USA and Europe (possibly more).

OneWeb, which is part owned by the UK Government, Bharti Global, Eutelsat, Softbank and Hanwha, has today taken the wraps off the small user terminal that will be used to offer broadband internet connectivity to businesses, governments and communities across the globe and in remote locations.

A recent study created by the research group ROADMAP-5G at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (CUAS) has tested SpaceX’s new Starlink constellation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) ultrafast broadband satellites under different usage scenarios, which reveals some interesting findings.

SpaceX has started to set out some tentative early details for the future second generation (Gen2) of their Low Earth Orbit (LEO) focused Starlink ultrafast broadband satellites, which would be larger, faster (data) and could push the size of their mega constellation to total 29,988 satellites.

The Broadband Stakeholder Group, which is a think-tank that advises the UK Government, has today published new research from Analysys Mason that examines some of the commercial and technical practicalities of providing faster broadband coverage to areas in the UK that are hardest to reach.

OneWeb, which is partly owned by the UK Government, Bharti Global, Eutelsat and Softbank, has today secured a $300m (£216) equity investment boost from South Korea’s Hanwha Systems to help further develop their large constellation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites for ultrafast low-latency broadband provision.

SPACEBEE Pico Satellites from Swarm Technologies

10th August, 2021 (5 Comments)

SpaceX appears set to complement their Starlink broadband service by acquiring Swarm Technologies, which has built a global network of tiny satellites (i.e. pico satellites built to the 0.25U CubeSat form factor) that will enable it to serve the Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity space (agricultural sensors, buoys at sea, smart energy meters etc.).

A new report from Ookla (Speedtest.net) has revealed how fast SpaceX’s new Starlink constellation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) ultrafast broadband satellites are for UK customers. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it comfortably beats fixed broadband ISPs for median (average) download speeds, but uploads and latency are another matter.

4th August, 2021 (35 Comments)

A somewhat questionable new survey from Uswitch, which is based on feedback from a nationally representative sample of 4,002 UK adults, has boldly claimed that 1.3 million UK households are already using a satellite broadband connection. But we can’t find anything to substantiate such a figure.

British satellite telecommunications company Inmarsat has today announced their future communications network, ORCHESTRA, which aims to “seamlessly integrate” their existing fleet of geosynchronous (GEO) platforms with a constellation of up to 175 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites and terrestrial 5G (mobile broadband) connectivity.

The new generation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) based ultrafast broadband satellite constellations, such as from Elon Musk’s Starlink (SpaceX) and British-registered OneWeb, has today prompted Ofcom to launch a new consultation on several licensing changes to help support them and tackle potential interference.
