OneWeb has received approval from the Federal Communications Commission to launch later this year its constellation of 720 satellites that will work to provide broadband internet services worldwide, Daily Breeze reported Saturday.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai cleared OneWeb’s application on June 22.
“We hope to approve many more constellations because we know that the more companies compete, the more consumers win,” Pai said.
“There are networks now being conceived above us in orbit,” said Desch, also an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2017.
“I don’t think anything out there shouldn’t be able to move… I’m just hoping they don’t run into anything.”
