Aerospace giant says it could build a communications satellite for top technology companies such as Google, Amazon.com, Facebook, or Apple.
Boeing BA 1.39% could clinch a deal this year to build a high-throughput communications satellite for top technology companies such as Google GOOG 1.31% , Amazon.com AMZN 0.75% , Facebook FB 0.03% or Apple AAPL 0.89% .
Jim Simpson, vice president of business development and chief strategist for Boeing Network and Space Systems, told Reuters the big technology firms were keen to expand Internet access around the world to help them grow.
“The real key to being able to do these type of things is ultra high-throughput capabilities, where we’re looking at providing gigabytes, terrabytes, pedabytes of capability,” Simpson told Reuters after a panel at the Satellite 2015 conference Monday.
