JESSELL AT LARGE

Jessell | Do Broadcasters Deserve A Bit Of C-Band Gold?

As owners of earth stations, broadcasters may be able to cut themselves in for a portion of the billions that satellite operators hope to get from the sale of some of their C-band spectrum to 5G wireless carriers. But I’d rather see the taxpayers get the excess proceeds.

Satellite Ops Pitch Plan To Share C-Band

SES has accepted the merits of an Intelsat/Intel suggestion to the FCC that satellite’s valuable C-band frequencies can be shared with telcos in city areas to help boost 5G coverage. SES will join a consortium with Intelsat which is open to all satellite operators. The move, if accepted by the FCC, could prove to be extremely valuable for SES and Intelsat. The two dominate the supply of satellite capacity over the US.
