LEO constellation operators OneWeb, Iridium announce collaboration - SpaceNews.com, Sep 2019
"Iridium and OneWeb, two companies pursuing different types of telecommunications businesses from low Earth orbit, said Sept. 17 that they would work together on a combined service offering. "

"Iridium CEO Matt Desch has long said that his company’s 66-satellite constellation doesn’t compete with broadband startup OneWeb because the companies use two different frequencies. "

"Iridium’s recently completed Iridium Next constellation uses L-band, a robust, but lower throughput frequency. . . . OneWeb has six of a planned 650 initial satellites in orbit using Ku-band, a higher frequency with a slightly weaker signal but the ability to carry significantly more throughput."

"Dylan Browne, OneWeb’s vice president of government, said . . . maritime will likely be an early focus area for collaboration"
