Andrey Kirillovich,director of integration services and projects, RSCC: “[LEO] coverage is continuous and achieved by hundreds or even thousands of satellites. Many of them will, most of the time, cover oceans with no customers there. So the effectiveness of such a system and its advantage over GEO by adding coverage over the poles is questionable. It may be effective, but for regional use, or in certain verticals only.”http://www.kadiumpublishing.com/archive/nawc/2018/NAWC1807.pdf
