FCC modernises rules to facilitate satellite broadband

Wednesday 27 September 2017 | 09:17 CET | News
The Federal Communications Commission adopted an updated regulatory framework to facilitate the delivery of broadband services through satellite constellations. FCC believes this action paves the way for greater broadband offerings in the US, particularly in remote and rural areas. The Commission said it updated, clarified and streamlined the current rules governing non-geostationary satellite orbit (NGSO) fixed-satellite service (FSS) systems to better reflect current technology and promote additional operational flexibility.
