This will allow people to reduce their reliance on costly internet plans. There will be uncensored internet access to everyone. Global notifications will be sent during emergencies and natural disasters. Though in the beginning, data will be sent unidirectional but in future two-way internet will be offered to everyone free.
'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. '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.'
