The Role of Satellite in European Broadband
This IDC Market Presentation provides an overview of the changing role of satellite connectivity in the European communications market. With the entrance of Starlink and the likely entrance of other new initiatives based on the new generation of low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite technology, satellite-based communication is showing new potential. In this presentation, IDC examines what has really changed, profiles new market entrants, considers whether satellite can ever really compete directly with established communications services, and lays out the best roles for new satellite services moving forward. It includes some financial analysis to understand the cost factors affecting satellite business models.
