Overall, United States consumers receive broadband internet to their homes from three main types of providers, including cable, telecom, and satellite. Indeed, the United States has 112 million broadband subscribers in total, which receive broadband from one of these three types of service providers.

Specifically, the satellite segment has 2.2 million subscribers, equating to a 2% market share. Satellite broadband services are improving, with LEO-based constellations like Starlink. However, this form of connectivity has a focus on rural, or semi-rural areas, which are the places that do not have connectivity currently.
