Lowering satellite internet costs with very high capacity density
Internet Connectivity for the World
To provide Superfast & Ultrafast Broadband Internet and data connectivity to the unserved and underserved areas of the World by designing and launching a unique
constellation of Medium Earth Orbit - MEO satellites in 2023/24.
Improve the lives of communities across the globe through the development and delivery of government, social and commercial digital applications.
Constellation Launch in 2023/24
The initial launch of satellites will be in 2023/24, providing a highly competitive global based communications network for areas underserved and unserved by terrestrial networks, capable of serving complete nations as the primary solution.
The first tranche of capacity will become available to selected priority partners from 2023/24. Capacity and resilience will increase with each successive tranche of satellites launched, as well as cost improvements as new technologies become available and proven.
Enabling Digital Application Development and Deployment
With Methera Global capacity delivering many tens of Gbps across key areas of a country, governments and telecom operators can quickly and easily deliver valuable digital services and connectivity to people, homes, businesses and networks wherever it is required. This will rapidly reduce the digital divide and increase productivity and economic conditions for all those connected.
KEY SYSTEM BENEFITS
LOWER PRICES & IMPROVED PERFORMANCE
The Methera high capacity density system significantly reduces satellite bandwidth costs and delivers a level of service and performance that is a step change from that which is currently achievable.
SMALL, LOW COST END USER TERMINAL
Methera’s end user terminal will be about 55cm and will be simple to install needing only a view of the sky, a firm base and a power supply (either plugin to the local electricity or a solar panel plus battery)
Methera capacity will be wholesaled to national partners selected by their administration. Capacity will be reserved for partners on a first come first served basis. Methera will work with its partners to deliver extremely low cost solutions for end users.
UK GOVERNMENT & SPACE AGENCY SUPPORT
In 2017, Methera Global Communications Limited and its consortium partners won grants from the UK Space Agency and Innovate UK to accelerate the development of the system and its design.
