Bankrupt OneWeb gets FCC approval for another 1,280 broadband satellites

Illustration of a OneWeb satellite orbiting the Earth.
Enlarge / Illustration of a OneWeb satellite.

Amid a bankruptcy and a pending sale, OneWeb has secured US approval to offer broadband service from 2,000 satellites.

OneWeb already had Federal Communications Commission approval for a 720-satellite constellation that was green-lit in June 2017. In an order released yesterday, the FCC gave OneWeb approval for another 1,280 satellites.

The first 720 satellites, of which OneWeb has launched 74, are for low Earth orbital altitudes of 1,200km. The additional 1,280 satellites were approved for medium Earth orbits of 8,500km. Both are much lower than the 35,000km geostationary orbits used by traditional satellite-broadband networks, which should result in lower latency and a better experience for Internet users.

OneWeb filed another application in May 2020 to launch a whopping 47,844 satellites at an altitude of 1,200km, but it’s not clear how long it would take to get FCC approval. OneWeb’s application for 1,280 satellites had been pending for more than three years before the FCC approved it this week. In that intervening time, the FCC adopted several rule changes related to satellite broadband, including an April 2019 order with new licensing rules for one of the spectrum bands that OneWeb eventually got approval to use.

OneWeb, which is based in London, also needs approval from UK regulators.

New spectrum, more capacity

The newly approved 1,280 satellites will use V-Band spectrum (37.5-43.5GHz, 47.2-50.2 GHz, and 50.4-51.4GHz). The FCC decision also gave OneWeb permission to use those frequencies with the previously approved 720 satellites. Originally, the 720 satellites were authorized to use only the Ku and Ka spectrum bands.

“We are pleased to hear the FCC granted our V-Band application. The V-band is critical for next generation satellite broadband services,” OneWeb told Ars in a statement today. “OneWeb looks forward to the future growth opportunities this approval will enable as we commercialize our spectrum and execute on our mission to bring low-latency connectivity to communities, governments, businesses, and people in the US and around the world.”

The FCC approval is contingent on OneWeb complying with power limits and spectrum-sharing rules, preventing interference with other networks, following procedures to minimize orbital debris, and other conditions. Under FCC rules, OneWeb has six years to launch 50 percent of licensed satellites and nine years to launch all of them.

The FCC said granting OneWeb’s application is in the public interest, and that the “additional capacity would enhance OneWeb’s ability to offer its proposed broadband services in the United States.”

Bankruptcy and sale

OneWeb filed for bankruptcy and laid off most of its staff in late March. On July 3, OneWeb agreed to sell the business to a consortium including the UK government and Bharti Global Limited for $1 billion.

The sale needs approval from regulators and the US Bankruptcy Court; OneWeb said it expects to complete the sale in Q4 2020. Bankruptcy proceedings are ongoing, and OneWeb told Ars that it “continues to target Q4 for exit from Chapter 11.”

OneWeb will have to compete against SpaceX, which has already launched over 600 satellites and started beta tests with Internet users. SpaceX has FCC permission to launch nearly 12,000 satellites and has applied for authorization to launch another 30,000.

Like OneWeb, SpaceX is using V-Band spectrum. SpaceX argued in filings that OneWeb should have to “detail how it intends to deploy in both the Ku/Ka and V-bands, whether it will have to replace an initial wave of Ku/Ka-band satellites with a new generation of V-band equipped satellites, and if so, how it intends to manage the significant coordination, collision avoidance, and disposal management challenges that such a rapid turn-over would require,” the FCC said in a summary of SpaceX’s concerns. The FCC rejected SpaceX’s request, explaining that “the information provided by OneWeb is sufficient and consistent with what has been received from other applicants” and that the extra information SpaceX requested “does not affect the interference analyses relied upon for this grant.”

In July, Amazon received FCC approval to launch 3,236 low Earth orbit satellites for its planned “Project Kuiper” broadband service.

Review: Ditch Your Other Chargers For Zendure’s SuperTank Pro

Zendure has announced its latest future-forward charging gear, the new SuperTank Pro and the accompanying SuperPort S4 both cater to an increasingly USB-C world.

A couple years ago, we loudly touted the Zendure SuperTank as our favorite high-capacity battery thanks to its rugged design, four simultaneous outputs, and ridiculously fast input and output speeds. The original SuperTank looks dated compared to the new SuperTank Pro.

In short, the new SuperTank Pro ups the game as the very first battery pack we’ve gotten our hands on to have not one or two, but four USB-C ports. Not only that, but it is still capable of up to 138W of total output including two ports that are capable of 100W in or out. It also is equipped with an OLED display that shows real-time charging speeds per port.

SuperTank Pro isn’t just equipped with USB-C ports, it got a whole new look. It still occupies the same footprint as its predecessor, but it is now encased in anodized aluminum with ABS plastic for the mid-frame. This gives it an even more premium feel than the all-plastic design it had.

There is a still a single button on the battery, used to wake it from sleep. When pressed, the new large OLED display illuminates, and shows the battery percentage, the remaining watt-hours, and the real-time input or output power on each of the four ports.

The new aluminum SuperTank Pro OLED display

Since Zendure traded out the two USB-A ports for two more USB-C ports, they are now able to line up in a single clean row just below the OLED panel.

Zendure also made it a point to allow the SuperTank Pro to have upgradeable firmware. This helps it maintain support for emerging charging protocols and standards so you don’t have to upgrade the battery itself — just the firmware.

One downside is, at least for the moment, firmware upgrades can only be done on a PC leaving all of us iPhone- or Mac-only users to leech off of our Windows PC-toting friends when the time comes for a firmware update. Hopefully, post-launch Zendure brings the firmware upgrade process to Mac as well.

Impressive charging speeds

While USB-C is incredibly simple in terms of charging so many different devices with a single port, maximum efficiency in charging takes a little wrangling. It isn’t as simple as “every port does 100W in and 100W out.”

The four ports are broken up into sets of two. The first two ports, which are designated with the picture of a laptop and a tablet, are the high power ports. The remaining two ports, designated with an iPhone and a tablet, are the slower two.

The new aluminum SuperTank Pro

The new aluminum SuperTank Pro

Those first two ports are both capable of 100W of output or input. That is more than enough for one of those ports to charge a 16-inch MacBook Pro at full speed. When used as outputs at the same time, the speed is slightly downgraded to only 60W max each for a combined 120W of power total output.

The second two ports are rated for 18W of power each. Easily enough to quickly charge an iPad or Fast Charge an iPhone. In total, when using all four ports, the SuperTank Pro can output 138W. There are very few battery packs out there that can do 100W of power, let alone 138W, and likely zero that can do that while sporting four USB-C ports.

The new aluminum SuperTank Pro

Fast outputs are great, but the fast input isn’t to be understated. When you have a battery as large as the SuperTank Pro, charging at 18W, 30W, or even 60W can take quite some time. SuperTank Pro, just as the original SuperTank, can handle 100W of input. In our tests, that is enough to charge the battery in just over 90 minutes. This is absolutely huge to charge the battery fast and get out the door.

Needless to say the SuperTank Pro supports USB-C Power Delivery as well as Fast Charge on newer iPhones. For those in the Samsung ecosystem, it supports up to 55W PPS charging. That’s up to roughly 35W of power for the Samsung S20 Ultra & Note 10. If a new, faster standard of USB-C charging emerges, SuperTank Pro can be upgraded to support it.

Importantly, this doesn’t have as much to do with the Zendure SuperTank Pro itself, as it does with the inherent nature of USB-C and high-capacity charging as a whole.

SuperPort S4

Included with the SuperTank Pro is a 100W braided USB-C cable, and no AC charger — you still need a 100W USB-C charger to power it up. This is solved with Zendure’s new SuperPort S4.

Last time we looked at the original SuperPort, but the SuperPort S4 has a much more compact design thanks to its reliance on GaN tech.

The new SuperPort S4

The new SuperPort S4

Instead of two USB-C and two USB-A, SuperPort S4 has three USB-C ports and only one USB-A port. It can output a combined 110W of power when spread between all ports but both the top two each support 100W when used alone.

The third port is rated for 20W of power and the USB-A port can handle 22.5W of power. When the first two are used at the same time, the first drops to a max of 60W and the second drops to a max of 45W.

The new SuperPort S4

The new SuperPort S4

As we mentioned, the SuperPort S4 is a gallium nitride charger, or GaN. GaN replaces silicon used in traditional chargers. We did a whole write up on the benefits of GaN but the short version is that it is more efficient, generates less heat, and can handle higher currents than silicon. As a result of those, it can be much smaller in size.

If we compare the Zendure SuperPort S4 to Apple’s own 96W USB-C charger, it is 30 percent smaller, supports more power draw, and has three additional USB ports. If I’m traveling and taking a charger for my Mac, this is the one I’m taking.

Should you buy the Zendure SuperTank Pro and SuperPort S4?

You should hands-down consider both the Zendure SuperTank Pro and SuperPort S4. Zendure has given you two very good reasons to ditch any other charger you own.

SuperTank Pro looks great, is rugged, has an incredible amount of power output, equally impressive power input, and an industry-leading four USB-C ports. The new display is a fantastic visual of all your devices and exactly how fast they are charging.

Its 96.5Wh capacity is also just a hair below the industry standard 100Wh maximum for flights which means you are able to fly with the Zendure SuperTank without any issues.

SuperPort S4 is also welcomed with three USB-C ports and still a legacy USB-A port for anything you haven’t quite upgraded yet. A constant complaint of ours is the lack of USB-C ports on chargers. As we’ve started transitioning all our gear to Type-C, it has been hard to charge them as very nearly all available chargers have at most two Type-C ports.

Power all your gear with the SuperPort S4 and SuperTank Pro

Power all your gear with the SuperPort S4 and SuperTank Pro

In our setup, our GoPro, our DJI Osmo Pocket, our Nikon Z7, our iPhone, our Apple Watch, our Zendure SuperTank Pro, our iPad Pro, our AirPods Pro, and our MacBook Pro all charge over USB-C but finding that many Type-C ports is nearly a non-starter. We don’t always have all these devices with us, but a regular trip sees us with our Mac or iPad alongside our, iPhone, AirPods Pro, and Apple Watch. Now, all of those can charge at once on the SuperTank Pro or the SuperPort S4.

If we had one change we’d like to see is that USB-A port gone on the SuperPort S4 but at this point in time, the industry is stubbornly hanging on to USB-A. Maybe for the next revision.

  • New aluminum design
  • 100W input and output — 138W max output
  • Large capacity but can still go on a plane
  • Four USB-C ports
  • Low power mode without having to toggle it on
  • Support for PPS charging on compatible devices
  • New display brings transparency to charging speeds
  • Includes 100W charging cable
  • Firmware can upgraded
  • SuperPort S4 is a perfect companion
  • SuperPort S4 is smaller and more powerful than Apple’s 96W brick
  • Firmware upgrade only works on Windows at the moment
  • USB-C outputs can get confusing
  • SuperPort S4 still has one USB-A
  • SuperPort S4 has less combined output than original SuperPort

Rating: 5 out of 5

Where to buy

The new Zendure SuperTank Pro is now available to back on Kickstarter. It handily surpassed its funding goal within the first 20 minutes. Early backers can save up to 40 percent and snag a SuperTank Pro for $149 during the campaign.

As a reminder, this is a crowdfunding campaign and not the same as a preorder. There is no guarantee that Zendure will deliver on their promised goals. That said, this is Zendure’s 10th campaign, all of which were successfully delivered upon. We’ve also been able to test the SuperTank Pro to ensure the product is real and working.

Apple celebrates national parks’ 104th birthday with new ways to support the National Park Foundation

In celebration of the US National Park Service’s 104th birthday, on August 25, Apple today is introducing new ways for customers to support America’s parks — in person or from home. A new Apple Pay donation program, Apple Watch Activity Challenge, and special content collections give people the chance to experience the parks and learn more about what makes them an incredible national resource. These collections will be available in the Apple TV app, Apple Music, and the App Store.

From August 24 through 30, Apple will make a $10 donation to the National Park Foundation for each purchase made with Apple Pay on, in the Apple Store app, or at an Apple Store in the US.1

“Our national parks strengthen our connection to nature, to one another, and to the soul of our nation,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re excited to continue building on our four-year partnership with the National Park Foundation, and to support their work to preserve our parks for generations to come.”

How to use loops in Python

how to use loops in Python

In this post, you will learn how to use loops in Python.

Loops are a commonly used structure in programming that allows you to repeat a block of code a set number of times, or until you meet a particular condition.

This is useful for many reasons. For example, if you are building a game, then you might want the bulk of your code to continuously “loop” while you update the position of enemies and check for player inputs. If you build a game in Pygame, then “game loop” will be one of the most important aspects of that code.

Also read: How to make a game in Python: An introduction to Pygame

More often, programmers need to learn how to use loops in Python so that they can perform iterative tasks. For instance, they might want to individually check all the files in a list, or they might want to look for something in a database.

Now you know what a loop is, the next question is how to use loops in Python!

How to use “for” loops in Python

There are two main types of loop across programming. These are “for” loops and “while” loops. For loops are used to run through a range – for instance all the items on a list.

You do this by setting the “range” in brackets.

For example:

for x in range(5):

This will print out the numbers 1-5. If you had a list, then you could likewise use this to run through the list and print each item:

fruit = ["apple", "orange", "pear", "banana", "pineapple", "grape"]

for x in range(5):

This will show us the first five items on our list!

We can also use a for loop to show a section of items by using two numbers in our range: a starting number and an ending number.

fruit = ["apple", "orange", "pear", "banana", "pineapple", "grape"]

for x in range(2, 5):

This will show entries two through five! But remember that the first item in a list has the index “zero.”

Finally, we can actually change the iterator – the number of steps taken on each loop.

for x in range(2, 20, 3):

This will go from the second (third) entry up to the 20th, jumping three places each time.

How to use “while” loops in Python

The great thing about Python is that a lot of its statements sound like plain English, meaning you can guess what they do before you even learn!

A “while loop” runs “while” something is true.

Here, you write “while” followed by a test statement, a colon, and a code block. The code block runs repeatedly until the test statement is no longer true:

n = 0
while n < 10:
    n += 1

This will run until n = 10. Remember that “<” means smaller than, and n += 1 means the same thing as n = n + 1.

Oh, and you can also stop the code at any time by using “break” or truncate your code (return to the for or while statement halfway through the code block) using “continue.”

So that is how to use loops in Python! It’s pretty simple, but if you combine this with if statements, you can accomplish all kinds of amazing things! Find out how to do this by reading our huge and comprehensive guide to the language here: Python beginners’ guide – Everything you need to know to get started!

AT&T reportedly trying to sell DirecTV after massive customer losses

An AT&T logo on the side of a building.

AT&T is reportedly trying to sell DirecTV to private-equity investors just five years after buying the satellite provider. The negotiations with potential buyers come after millions of customers ditched DirecTV over the past two years, and could value DirecTV at much less than the $49 billion AT&T paid for it.

“AT&T is seeking private-equity investors to buy the majority of its DirecTV satellite-television business, helping it cope with a major drag on its operations, according to people familiar with the situation,” Bloomberg wrote yesterday. AT&T and its advisers at Goldman Sachs “have been in talks with private-equity suitors about the satellite TV unit,” with potential bidders including Apollo Global Management and Platinum Equity, The Wall Street Journal reported.

AT&T could end up selling DirecTV for far less than it paid five years ago. “Any deal for the satellite TV service would be sizable but likely a far cry from the $49 billion AT&T paid for it in 2015,” the Journal wrote, quoting sources familiar with the talks as saying that “a deal could value the business below $20 billion.”

7 million subscribers lost since mid-2018

A sale is by no means a certainty, and AT&T could retain a minority stake in DirecTV even if a sale occurs, the reports said. “AT&T is looking to sell just over 50 percent of the asset, which would allow the telecom giant to take a fast-shrinking business off its books while still enjoying the benefits of a still-large distribution network,” the Journal wrote. AT&T previously considered a sale of DirecTV last year but decided to keep the satellite business.

AT&T’s 2015 purchase of DirecTV happened under then-CEO Randall Stephenson, who retired this year. The new talks with potential buyers “were spurred by Chief Executive John Stankey,” who replaced Stephenson in July, the Journal wrote, adding that “Mr. Stankey has said the company should sharpen its focus on core connectivity services.”

AT&T has been reporting big customer losses each quarter for the past two years, with AT&T’s rising TV prices helping push users to other TV or online streaming services. After a Q2 2020 loss of 954,000 customers, AT&T was down to 18.41 million customers across DirecTV, U-verse TV, and AT&T-branded online TV services. That’s a loss of more than 7 million customers since mid-2018 when AT&T had 25.45 million subscribers in those categories.

AT&T declined to comment, according to Bloomberg. We contacted AT&T today and will update this article if we get a response.

Developer convinces Apple to bend App Store rules on subscriptions

The developer of a firewall and VPN app has successfully managed to challenge the App Store guidelines that govern the app review process, enabling it to offer a day pass subscription that isn’t typically allowed under the rules.

During WWDC, Apple revealed a major change to the review process of apps and updates being submitted to the App Store, enabling developers to challenge guidelines in cases where apps are rejected for violations. In posts made to Twitter, it seems one developer has managed to successfully take advantage of the new process.

Guardian VPN founder Will Strafach revealed on Twitter on August 14 that Apple had rejected updates to the app unless a Day Pass facility was removed. The specific rule that was being violated was 3.1.2(a), which relates to how an auto-renewing subscription must last at least seven days, far longer than the 24 hours the day pass would provide.

After challenging the update, an app update was approved for the store one day later, but the challenge was still ongoing. 9to5Mac spotted an update from Strafach on August 29, stating the guideline challenge was successful, and that the day pass would still be available to use in an upcoming version 2 update.

“I am unsure when the text of the App Store Guidelines will be publicly updated on this matter, but keep an eye out,” writes Strafach. I am fairly impressed that this new ability to challenge and change App Store guidelines is genuine, and the expeditious turnaround time.”

The objection by Apple was relatively late in the app’s life, as it has offered a day pass feature for some time already, and was only a problem since August. The timing on August 14 coincides with Apple’s objection to Epic Games’ update to “Fortnite” that used direct payments instead of the App Stores in-app payment mechanism on August 13, which commenced a major legal battle between Epic and Apple
