Skylo Technologies: It’s not clear that LEO is better than GEO for D2D applications

by Peter B. de Selding

LA PLATA, Maryland — Satellite direct-to-device (D2D) service provider Skylo Technologies, ostensibly neutral with respect to the GEO vs LEO argument, said it’s not clear that LEO is the superior architecture, at least not yet.

Skylo’s service is debuting in Europe and North America using already licensed mobile satellite service spectrum from geostationary satellites owned by Viasat Inc. as part of Viasat’s acquisition of Inmarsat; and from Ligado, which has rights to some of that spectrum.
