A constellation of ~ 40,000 :eek: low earth orbit satellites for internet. It should greatly improve latency issues for rural folks such as my self.
Apparently, the satellites are networked by laser, and as they orbit you are passed off from one to the next. Currently, my sat is in geosynchronous orbit some 22,000 miles above. These new sats are going to be much, much lower (370 miles) and thus should improve latency.
No debate, Just wonder if anyone else is following this, and your opinions.
I would like better internet now that I am working from home, but doubt it will come into fruition before I end up back in my cube. Not sure how all this is going to play out. I may be allowed to work from home from now on.
It does seem to be an incredibly ambitious plan.
