The framework will enable satellite access for smartphone users in emergency situations.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) intends to establish a new regulatory framework to enable connections between satellite operators and wireless firms to connect smartphone users in isolated or underserved regions worldwide.

FCC stated in a release that it aims to “create clear and open protocols to facilitate supplemental coverage from space.”
