While broadcasting is often seen as the oxygen of the satellite industry, the broadband opportunity is growing, and becoming more interesting by the day. With newer, more powerful satellites being launched, satellite is better equipped than ever to provide these services. While it may never match the speeds of super fast terrestrial alternatives in urban areas, the speeds and reliability it can now reach mean it can serve more than just the remotest areas of any given country. It can no longer be just classed as a ‘last resort’ technology for the broadband ‘have nots’. This panel assesses the state of the satellite broadband market and talks about just how the big the business opportunity for satellite is, and whether the new satellites going up here really are ‘game changers’ for the industry.
