Satellite Competition Report
In July 2005, Congress adopted and President Bush signed into law the Communications Satellite Act—Amendment (Pub. L. No. 109-34, 119 Stat. 377) (“Amendment Act”), which amended the Communications Satellite Act of 1962 (47 U.S.C. § 701 et seq.). Section 4 of the Amendment Act requires the FCC to submit to Congress an annual report that analyzes the competitive market conditions with respect to domestic and international satellite communications services. On March 26, 2007, the Commission released the first Satellite Competition Report. That first report and related information may be found at the “Historical Documents” link on the left. The International Bureau is currently working on the second of these annual Satellite Competition Reports.
