The new space race is all about satellites: Pros and cons of each orbit

NSR quoted in The Next Web (TNW) article “The new space race is all about satellites”: Pros and cons of each orbit: Pros — Their close distance enables low latency broadband delivery, with levels comparable to the performance of fiber transmission. This kind of fiber-like performance will become even more important as satellite capacity growth is increasingly fueled by high-throughput, data-centric use cases like broadband connectivity — instead of traditional video-centric applications. In addition, MEO satellite constellations can cover the majority of Earth with about eight satellites.
