For those who think LEO satellite internet is asure thing

There are quite a few people on this and other forums who seem to think that low earth orbit (LEO) satellite internet is "right around the corner."

OneWeb was one of the highly touted companies and had just put 3 dozen satellites into orbit last week. This past Friday it filed for Chapter 11.

I'm not denying that eventually LEO satellites will be a viable option, at least for some people, but there's a lot of distance to go between there and now! JMO

Also, nobody knows what they will be charging or whether it will be price-competitive with terrestrial service.

Chapter 11 is for re-organization, not total liquidation and cessation. So, the company can keep operating.

However, the original points are well taken. This endeavor is not a cake-walk.


Thanks, Joel, for the info.
