Starlink, SpaceX's budding satellite broadband service, has just received a setback in France that may dent its ambition to become a global provider of broadband services using a mesh of thousands of low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites.

France's highest administrative court, the Conseil d'État, has essentially stripped Starlink of its license to operate in two frequency bands in the country, reversing a decision made by French telecoms regulator Arcep in February 2021.

Speakers cited a RKF Engineering Solutions study that said 5G and non-geostationary fixed satellite service deployments can coexist.

RSA filed its RKF Engineering Solutions study indicating 5G and NGSO FSS deployments in the band are "achievable in nearly all deployment scenarios -- even without coordination." It said RKF's modeling of 2.5 million SpaceX terminals found fewer than 1% nominally affected, and few if any of those would see service hurt.

Allowing the 12 GHz spectrum band to be used for 5G could yield as much as $1 trillion in economic benefits, according to a new report from the Brattle Group. The Brattle Group analysis draws on technical research conducted by RKF Engineering that showed that 5G service in the 12 GHz band could co-exist with direct broadcast satellite (DBS) and non-geostationary orbit (NGSO) satellite broadband services already operational in the band.
