Tech Target: Starlink coverage can make remote work very remote
“Seamless connection depends on satellite and bandwidth availability,” said Vivek Suresh Prasad, [of] Northern Sky Research (NSR), a market research and consulting firm in Cambridge, Mass., focused on the satellite and space sectors.
SpaceX’s first phase is to deploy a network of 4,200-plus satellites, a plan approved by the Federal Communications Commission and the International Telecommunication Union. It currently supports more than 2,000 satellites and added nearly 400 satellites in the first quarter of this year.
“More satellites in orbit will translate to improved connection reliability,” Prasad said, adding that SpaceX has received FCC approval for 12,000 satellites in the long term.
