SpaceX and three other companies won FCC approval for new satellite constellations Thursday. The FCC approved SpaceX's proposal for a constellation of 7,518 V-band satellites in very low Earth orbit, the largest of the four. The FCC also granted approvals to Telesat for a new 117-satellite V-band system, Kepler Communications for a 140-satellite Ku-band system and LeoSat for a 78-satellite Ka-band system. All the companies now have six years to launch at least half their satellites and nine years to deploy all of them.
