Abstract

An analysis is made of changes taking place in U. S. international satellite communications policy, intended to extend to the international market the presumed benefits of deregulation. The effect of changes in the structure and mandate of COMSAT are discussed together with the definition of an authorized user of COMSAT facilities. Impacts of deregulation of INTELSAT earth station ownership, which permits additional firms to have direct access to INTELSAT space segment are assessed. Plans for alternative international communications satellite networks to bypass INTELSAT altogether are also discussed. The reaction of INTELSAT and PTTs in other countries are analyzed, as well as the potential impact of submarine fiber optic cables on international satellite communications systems.
