Inmarsat CEO Sukawaty to FCC: Where's the love for satellite?
Andrew Sukawaty is the CEO of British-based Inmarsat. His satellite service customers include broadband providers in the U.S. that bring high-speed Internet connections to hard-to-reach areas through satellite feeds.
Inmarsat’s main business comes from military and governments and businesses (oil rigs, construction sites, etc.) that can’t tap into fiber optic, cable connections or wireless cell services.
But Sukawaty, who stopped by The Post on Friday, is also paying close attention to the rollout of the Federal Communications Commission’s national broadband plan.
He doesn’t see much that includes satellite as part of the nation’s future broadband plans. And he had this question for regulators and lawmakers as they begin to turn the plan into action.
