Non-GSO Satellites Have the Potential to Revolutionize Broadband Connectivity.
This modern technology is constrained by outdated regulations of the past that threaten the continuity of satellite broadband innovation.
We urge the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to adopt a Future Agenda Item (FAI) to commit to studying the rules around satellite epfd
power limits at WRC-23.
A NEW paper published by former FCC Commissioner Harold Furchtgott-Roth dives deeper into the need to update epfd limits to reflect modern technology.
About the Alliance
The Alliance for Satellite Broadband is a coalition of companies, think tanks, and advocacy groups seeking to expand access to broadband connectivity by modernizing restrictive global regulations. The group specifically asks Member States of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to commit to studying the current rules around satellite power limits — called equivalent power flux-density (epfd) — at the 2023 World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-23).
