In this comprehensive, independent thought-leadership report we cover the opportunities unlocked by Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satcoms for the healthcare sector, with recommendations for opportunities and service delivery enhancement in remote parts of the UK and beyond. Unlike geostationary (GEO) satellites that must always orbit along Earth’s equator, LEO satellites do not have to follow a particular path meaning there are more available routes for satellites. LEO has a number of potential use cases in health. Being low orbit, satellites can now compete on speed and cost, without the legacy issues around latency, bandwidth and availability.
