Come join the upcoming UK Spectrum Policy Forum Cluster 1 workshop on Thursday 15 December for a comprehensive overview of what is happening in the satellite-to-cellular connectivity field and early insight into future trends and activities.

Over the last few months, there’s been increasing discussion about phones and satellites – fuelled by different big tech announcements, technical developments, and new business opportunities.

Satellite connectivity within existing smartphone hardware, rather than needing a dedicated device, is becoming a reality.

With momentum set to accelerate, this Cluster 1 workshop focuses on the spectrum implications of new constellations and satellite deployments, and the potential effect on internet access for consumers and businesses.
