Global - Wireless Broadband - Ka-Band Satellite

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2005 and has not been updated. The well documented failures of LEO satellite constellations have raised doubts about the future of broadband satellites. Nevertheless, with decreasing costs and the continuing use of the Internet, most satellite operators’ businesses are continuing to grow at healthy rates. Offsetting this, the glut in submarine cable supply, price competition is putting more and more pressure on satellite systems. This report discusses the strengths and weakness of Ka-Band, its delays in implementation, and signs of progress in 2005.
