Episode 31: The Old Space isn't the New Space! with Doug Mahney - Part 2

October 13, 2020

If you used your phone, tablet, car, etc. you almost certainly connected to a Satellite. There are Satellite constellations being deployed, right now, to deliver more connectivity to more people than in the history of the world. They are also able to see more of our lives – whether we want them too or not. Is that a good thing, a bad thing, or just a thing? Join me in this two-part series with Doug Mohney, editor in chief of Satellite IT Bridge as we discuss this and more, on the next QTS Experience.
