- Samsung proposes these satellites could use high frequency spectrum usually known as millimeter wave spectrum. Millimeter wave spectrum promises the ability to transfer up to 575 megabytes per second.
Samsung has a ton of research into the 60 GHz technology — much smaller than current Wi-Fi networks that work on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. But previously Samsung has indicated it believes millimeter wave — or WiGig — would be a kind of “5G” wireless network.
- Samsung isn’t the only company investigating using low earth orbit satellites to network areas where buried fiber or traditional wireless networks might not cover. It joins Richard Branson-funded OneWeb as well as Space X, and is similar to projects from Google and Facebook.
