A start-up is planning to offer wholesale services using 600 satellites connected by lasers.
Rivada Space Networks has a licence for 4,000MHz of spectrum, which will be used to connect low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites to data centres, telecoms operators and enterprises, said Declan Ganley, the founder.
Customers will have their own dishes, Ganley (pictured) told Capacity in an interview. “Signals won’t be relayed via terrestrial networks. That vastly improves security.”
