Elon Musk on Satellite Internet Bandwidth


For spectrum that is omni-directional and
wall-penetrating – that spectrum is extremely rare and limited. Spectrum that is not
wall-penetrating and that is very directional is not rare. It’s sort of the difference between
a laser beam and a flat light. You know you can have lots of laser beams
– in limit that would be sort of a real type EVE communication. So there’s high scarcity
for cellular bandwidth, there is not high scarcity for space to earth bandwidth. So
long as it’s not roof-penetrating. So I don’t see bandwidth as being a particularly difficult
issue.
