OUTERNET: Company plans to beam ‘free Wi-fi to everyone’ using low-earth orbit cubesats

Is this the future of the internet? 

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER - 5 February 2014

  • An ambitious project known as Outernet is aiming to launch hundreds of miniature satellites into low Earth orbit by June 2015 

  • Each satellite will broadcast the Internet to phones and computers giving billions of people across the globe free online access 

  • Citizens of countries like China and North Korea that have censored online activity could be given free and unrestricted cyberspace 

  • 'There's really nothing that is technically impossible to this'

The Outernet project aims to begin deploying prototype satellites to test their technology by this summer.

The project is being sold as a way to “bring the free internet to the masses, for free”, but what is it really?

You might think you have to pay through the nose at the moment to access the Internet.
But one ambitious organisation called the Media Development Investment Fund (MDIF) is planning to turn the age of online computing on its head by giving free web access to every person on Earth.

Known as Outernet, MDIF plans to launch hundreds of satellites into orbit by 2015.
And they say the project could provide unrestricted Internet access to countries where their web access is censored, including China and North Korea. 

Project leaders also claim their new net will ‘bring the free-flow of information to the oppressed peoples of China, and North Korea’. 

Here’s a clue: “Outernet will broadcast the Internet to you and allow you to flick through certain websites…”

Certain websites? Sound a lot like China and North Korea to us…

Aside from the very high likelihood that this ‘cubesat’ (image, left) network will be co-opted and then absorbed by one of the major ISP’s – or Google-NSA Inc, there is the health and safety issue of microwaves used in WIFI (of course, this is at the top of their list of concerns – yeah, sure it is). The negative effects of WIFI are only now becoming known, so a system like this will mean that no one will be able to opt-out of WIFI.


You might think you have to pay through the nose at the moment to access the Internet.
But one ambitious organisation called the Media Development Investment Fund (MDIF) is planning to turn the age of online computing on its head by giving free web access to every person on Earth.
Known as Outernet, MDIF plans to launch hundreds of satellites into orbit by 2015.
And they say the project could provide unrestricted Internet access to countries where their web access is censored, including China and North Korea.
Using something known as datacasting technology, which involves sending data over wide radio waves, the New York-based company says they’ll be able to broadcast the Internet around the world.
The group is hoping to raise tens of millions of dollars in donations to get the project on the road.
The Outernet team claim that only 60% of the world’s population currently have access to the wealth of knowledge that can be found on the Internet.
This is because, despite a wide spread of Wi-FI devices across the globe, many countries are unable or unwilling to provide people with the infrastructure needed to access the web.
The company’s plan is to launch hundreds of low-cost miniature satellites, known as cubesats, into low Earth orbit.
Here, each satellite will receive data from a network of ground stations across the globe.
Using a technique known as User Datagram Protocol (UDP) multitasking, which is the sharing of data between users on a network, Outernet will beam information to users.
Much like how you receive a signal on your television and flick through channels, Outernet will broadcast the Internet to you and allow you to flick through certain websites'We have a very solid understand of the costs involved, as well as experience working on numerous spacecraft,' said Project Lead of Outernet Syed Karim, who fielded some questions on Reddit.
'There isn't a lot of raw research that is being done here; much of what is being described has already been proven by other small satellite programs and experiments. 

There's really nothing that is technically impossible to this' 
But at the prospect of telecoms operators trying to shut the project down before it gets off the ground, Karim said: 'We will fight... and win.' 

If everything goes to plan, the Outernet project aims to ask NASA for permission to test the technology on the International Space Station. 

And their ultimate goal will be to beginning deploying the Outernet satellites into Earth orbit, which they say can begin in June 2015
