1 min read

The Federal Communications Commission has authorized SpaceX to provide satellite-based broadband services across the U.S. and the globe.

The company proposed to use a constellation consisting of 4,425 satellites and was approved to do so with Ka (20/30 GHz) and Ku (11/14 GHz) band frequencies, FCC said Thursday.

SpaceX’s non-geostationary-satellite orbit, fixed-satellite service constellation will be used to provide global-scale broadband coverage.

This authorization adds to previous FCC approvals for OneWeb, Space Norway and Telesat to provide broadband services via NGSO FSS constellations.
