Global Xpress will deliver mobile broadband speeds at up to 50Mbps – across the planet – to compact and lightweight satellite terminals. Part of a US$1.6 billion programme, it will be the first time a commercial operator has utilised Ka-band radio frequencies to deliver a global satellite service. More details on the mission and the satellites. Alternate live coverage of the launch is provided by the International Launch Services website.
