Satellite Orbit Heights Explained

Satellites in geostationary orbit are 22,236 miles above Earth; they’re moving at the same speed as the planet, and so appear to be stationary to us. As they’re in much higher orbit, they can ‘see’ much more of the earth, so fewer satellites are needed to cover a large territory.
