High speed from low orbit - A broadband revolution or a bunch of space junk?
- We predict that by the end of 2020, there will be more than 700 satellites in low-earth orbit (LEO) seeking to offer global broadband internet, up from roughly 200 at the end of 2019.
- The new “megaconstellations” of orbiting broadband stations will potentially add more than 16,000 individual satellites to that count over the coming years. The satellite broadband will give us a communications revolution—but at the same time, they might make space a much riskier and complex environment.
