  1. OneWeb’s broadband capacity target is to supply one Terabit/second in total to consumers initially. As extra satellites are lifted into space that overall throughput would jump ten-fold or more.

    Am I reading that right regarding total throughput? At their current Internet access speeds, 1 Tb/sec would only cover 500,000 Egyptians, 250,000 Costa Ricans, or 120,000 Vietnamese.

    I’m sure they’ve gone over the business case in fine detail, but I think they’ll have to sign up a whole lot of yak herders to pay for this thing.
