broknstrngz (1616893) writes "The first of three Inmarsat-5 satellites forming the Global Xpress network is scheduled to blast off on a Proton rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on 8 December. 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."
