The battle for more satellite bandwidth - POLITICO
Tom Stroup pushes for satellite:

"... in some of the working groups there seems to be a disconnect between space policy and the role we play in 5G services and the spectrum that will be made available for 5G services and the need for harmonization throughout the world."

Companies flood Earth’s orbit with satellites, but no one’s directing traffic - The Washington Post
via Phil Larson
"In the past five years, the number of operational satellites has jumped 40 percent, and nearly 1,400 now orbit the planet. And industry officials say the number could more than double in five years as a revolution in technology makes satellites smaller and more affordable."

"But U.S. officials are concerned about all the traffic in space and the lack of oversight. Although the Pentagon tracks objects orbiting the globe and warns of close approaches, it does not have the power to order an operator to move a satellite out of the way to avoid a collision."

"But U.S. officials are concerned about all the traffic in space and the lack of oversight. Although the Pentagon tracks objects orbiting the globe and warns of close approaches, it does not have the power to order an operator to move a satellite out of the way to avoid a collision.

Some members of Congress say a civilian agency, such as the Federal Aviation Administration, should be made responsible for managing satellite traffic. Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) has led that effort..."

"Some observers were skeptical of leaving it to satellite companies to regulate themselves and work together to stop collisions."

"Bridenstine is also wary of self-regulation. If a company knew, for example, that there was a 1-in-10,000 chance of a collision, he said, it might decide to live with that level of risk and not perform a costly maneuver"

2016 SIA State of Satellite Industry Report | SIA
The 2016 State of the Satellite Industry Report is SIA’s nineteenth annual summary of the industry. The report is derived from proprietary surveys of satellite companies, in-depth public information, and independent analysis which are combined to assess the performance of four satellite industry sectors: satellite services, satellite manufacturing, satellite launch services, and satellite ground equipment.

Qualcomm, Gogo continue clash over in-flight spectrum rules - FierceWirelessTech Feb 2015
"It's been years in the making, and Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) continues to urge the FCC to issue a Report and Order establishing the Next Generation Air-Ground service in the 14.0-14.5 GHz band "as soon as possible," according to an FCC filing. There's just one problem: Gogo."

Satellite industry opposes Qualcomm's proposed in-flight mobile broadband service — PolicyTracker: the spectrum management newsletter
"The US regulator is considering a Qualcomm request for a passenger in-flight mobile broadband service in the 14.0-14.5 GHz band. US satellite operators are opposed to the proposal, which could also have implications for European operators." "The new service would operate in the 14.0-14.5 GHz band on a secondary, non-interference basis for fixed satellite service (FSS) earth-to-space communications. The key to such sharing is spatial diversity, with FSS earth station antennas oriented to the south and above the horizon, air-ground mobile broadband base stations pointing to the north, and air-ground mobile broadband aircraft stations oriented below the horizon, the NPRM said. Air-ground mobile broadband services would have to protect primary FSS in the band from harmful interference, and also accommodate other federal and non-federal users."
