Amazon seeks U.S. approval to launch two internet satellites by 2022

WASHINGTON (Reuters) on Monday asked the U.S. Federal Communications Commission for approval to launch and operate two prototype internet satellites by the end of 2022 as part of the company’s effort to create a space-based satellite network. Amazon, which has pledged to spend at least $10 billion to build 3,236 such satellites through its Project Kuiper program, said the testing and demonstration launch is “an important step toward Amazon’s goal of delivering high-capacity, low latency broadband communications services to tens of millions of unserved and underserved consumers and businesses.” Amazon said on Monday it “continues to invest in Project Kuiper as we approach full production launches and prepare to serve tens of millions of customers around the world.”
