Notes

Lynk announced May 25 that it filed the FCC application using the commission’s streamlined licensing process for smallsats established in 2019. The company hopes that approach will allow it to begin commercial services with a first group of satellites within a year.
Miller added, though, that the Lynk system won’t be limited to messaging services. As both the number of satellites and the capability of individual satellites grows, he said the system could provide voice and other data services as well, including potentially broadband, depending on the capacity of the overall network.
In 2021, Lynk announced it has registered hundreds of unmodified mobile phones to its 5th cell-tower-in-space in three different countries (UK, US and Bahamas).
