Satellite operator Intelsat says it hasn’t been immune to the effects of Covid 19.
Intelsat’s to participate in the forthcoming clearance of C-band spectrum in the United States has led to the satellite operator to seek Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
Intelsat is considering commencing Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings if US regulators don’t increase the amount of compensation being offer for surrendering part of its C-band (3.7GHz to 4.2GHz) spectrum.
