It appears that once again, the government’s desire to cut ties completely with the EU will cost us hundreds of millions and led us to invest in the wrong sort of system.
The EU offered us continued use of Galileo (obviously at a cost), but instead we decided to take a 20% stake in the system designed by OneWeb. Unfortunately, this system is designed for people to access the internet using satellites at a low height rather than at the height required for GPS. Of course, it might be able to be tweaked with new satellites but that will cost a significant amount of money. Also OneWeb filed for bankruptcy in the US in March. Not exactly a good track record.
