Satellite operators Intelsat SA and SES SA beam video programming from
space down to TV stations and cable systems across the U.S. Now they
want to let Earth-bound wireless companies hitch a ride on some of
their airwaves.

If regulators go along with the plan, the Luxembourg-based companies
could reap billions of dollars in fees from mobile providers such as
AT&T Inc. or Verizon Communications Inc., which are constantly seeking
frequencies to serve the burgeoning demand of wireless devices.
