Here is what someone told me it basically could be, dirt cheap free just buy the material and you have internet, with a satellite dish, but it may be a one way deal and you might have to use dial up

As I said before Gary its just an idea, its not a real thing. Nor do I see it ever being one.

I don't see the FCC signing off on that one, nor would they be given spectrum to do so.

It is not really internet but broadcast of internet like data from space. You notice they have the concept of voting on what content is to be sent down in a continuous loop... What are they going to send? Wikipedia over and over?

Also, even if they don't have the right spectrum, they do still have a spectrum. Scott this is not for the FCC TO RULE ABOUT this is world wide not in the USA only, i also could see Ham spectrum being traded for the right spectrum, there always a demand for that ham spectrum set up a very lond time ago

Gary if its broadcasting in the USA or broadcasting out of the USA it needs FCC permission, plus the ITU regulates all the satellite space up there.

Its not going to use HAM frequencies as there is not even enough bandwidth there to properly deliver slow scan tv.

As I said neat idea, but never going to fly.
