Two basic questions about satellite communication

Hi,

1. Is it correct that gateway stations (or teleports?) must be used for spot beam satellite systems? That means, two user terminals cannot communicate directly with each other.

2. Are satellite beacons widely used?

I'm not aware of operational systems where user terminals can communicate directly with each other via satellite, but the upcoming satellite internet constellations (here is a thread) plan this.
