C-band reallocation debates between satellite operators and telecom providers aren’t new. Mid C-band spectrum is seemingly ideal for low frequency applications and resistant to rain fade, with recent 5G technology promoters terming the 3.7-4.2 GHz spectrum as a sweet spot. This part of C-band traditionally has fallen under the purview of the larger 3.4-4.2 GHz.
Pricing has been the most painful headache for satellite operators for the last couple of years. Rapid erosion in pricing, coupled with lackluster top line demand, has led to widespread revenue declines. With the industry readying for the next tsunami of capacity supply coming from LEO constellations and VHTS, pricing is unlikely to rebound anytime.
