OUTERNET: Company Plans To Beam Free Wi-Fi To Every Person On Earth

Very interesting. I didn't know if any of you had ever heard of this.

"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."

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.



Sounds like it just beaming information. Not a 2-way internet as we know today.
