For Immediate Release

FCC BOOSTS SATELLITE BROADBAND CONNECTIVITY
AND COMPETITION IN THE UNITED STATES

WASHINGTON, November 15, 2018óThe Federal Communications Commission today
approved the requests of four companiesóSpace Exploration Holdings, LLC (SpaceX), Kepler
Communications, Inc. (Kepler), Telesat Canada (Telesat), and LeoSat MA, Inc. (LeoSat)ó
seeking to roll-out new and expanded services using proposed non-geostationary satellite orbit
(NGSO) satellites. These proposed satellite systems are expected to enable fixed satellite service
in the United States, expanding global connectivity and advancing the goals of increasing highspeed
broadband availability and competition in the marketplace.

In a Memorandum Opinion, Order and Authorization, the Commission granted SpaceXís
application with certain conditions, authorizing SpaceX to construct, deploy, and operate a new
very-low-Earth orbit constellation of more than 7,000 satellites using V-band frequencies. The
Commission also granted SpaceXís request to add the 37.5-42.0 GHz, and 47.2-50.2 GHz
frequency bands to its previously authorized NGSO constellation. The Commissionís action
provides SpaceX with additional flexibility to provide both diverse geographic coverage and the
capacity to support a wide range of broadband and communications services for residential,
commercial, institutional, governmental, and professional users in the United States and globally.
In an Order and Declaratory Ruling, the Commission granted Keplerís request for U.S. market
access with certain conditions. The Commissionís action will allow Kepler to offer global
connectivity for the Internet of Things, especially sensors and other intelligent devices as well as
other FSS offerings using its proposed constellation of NGSO satellites in the 10.7-12.7 GHz and
14.0-14.5 GHz frequency bands. Keplerís proposed NGSO system, consisting of 140 satellites, is
licensed by Canada.

In an Order and Declaratory Ruling, the Commission granted Telesatís request for U.S. market
access with certain conditions in the 37.5-42.0 GHz, and 47.2- 50.2 GHz frequency bands. The
Commissionís action enables Telesat to offer high-speed, low-latency communication services in
the United States using its proposed constellation of NGSO satellites enhancing competition
among existing and future FSS satellite systems. Telesatís proposed NGSO system, consisting of
117 satellites, is licensed by Canada.

In an Order and Declaratory Ruling, the Commission also granted LeoSatís request for U.S.
market access with certain conditions in the 17.8-18.6 GHz, 18.8-19.4 GHz, 19.6-20.2 GHz, 27.5-
29.1 GHz, and 29.5-30.0 GHz frequency bands, using its proposed constellation of NGSO
satellites. Todayís action facilitates the provision of new and innovative satellite broadband
services in the United States by LeoSat, including high-speed connectivity for enterprises and
underserved communities. LeoSatís proposed NGSO system consists of 78 satellites, which will
operate under the ITU filings of France and a planned authorization from the Netherlands.
With todayís actions, the FCC has granted 13 market access requests and satellite applications to
nine companies for NGSO FSS constellations seeking authority to provide next-generation
connectivity across the country in the past 18 months. The Commission continues to process
additional requests.

Action by the Commission November 15, 2018 by Memorandum Opinion, Order and
Authorization (FCC 18-161); Order and Declaratory Ruling (FCC 18-162); Order and Declaratory
Ruling (FCC 18-163); and Order and Declaratory Ruling (FCC 18-164). Chairman Pai,
Commissioners OíRielly, Carr, and Rosenworcel approving each. Chairman Pai, Commissioners
OíRielly, Carr, and Rosenworcel issuing separate statements.

With the deployment of 5G millimeter wave sites in lamp posts, telephone poles, etc. in 2020, and now this announcement, it's time to line the ol' lady's mobile home with copper mesh...

Where are the studies on the effects of microwave (26Ghz, etc) on human tissue over long periods of exposure? 5G terrestrial networks do not look inviting at all.

Marketing and profits before human health...
