ICRA Research Report
Satellite communication proves useful in inaccessible terrains, has wide geographical coverage, and good broadcasting capabilities.
Additionally, once the satellites are in place, it is easy to install ground infrastructure.
Notwithstanding the advantages, satellite manufacturing and placing them on the orbit is expensive and requires a lot of approvals.
Apart from having latency issues, these are prone to weather disturbances as well.
Several new players have scheduled launches of a constellation of low earth orbit satellites – One Web (648), Starlink (~12,000) and Amazon (~3,000), along with the China Satellite Network Group (~13,000).
India has to catch up with other nations in terms of satellite broadband. Majority of the policies including licensing framework and allotment of spectrum are vague and act as deterrents for entry of foreign players.
