Bold Promise, so I’m a bit skeptical. But it’s desirable. Not only for humanity, but also for Skynet.
Unrestricted, globally accessible, broadcast data. Quality content from all over the Internet. Available to all of humanity. For free.
By leveraging datacasting technology over a low-cost satellite constellation, Outernet is able to bypass censorship, ensure privacy, and offer a universally-accessible information service at no cost to global citizens. It’s the modern version of shortwave radio, or BitTorrent from space.
WHAT PROBLEM IS OUTERNET SOLVING?
There are more WiFi devices in the world than people, yet only 60% of the global population has access to the wealth of knowledge found on the Internet. The price of smartphones and tablets is dropping year after year, but the price of data in many parts of the world continues to be unaffordable for the majority of global citizens. In some places, such as rural areas and remote regions, cell towers and Internet cables simply don’t exist. The primary objective of the Outernet is to bridge this global information divide.
