On September 7, 2003, the thread Satellite internet, anyone? was started by TopCat99, but it really didn't attract much interest because the technology, while currently useful for some, is still not really competitive. Now it seems likely that by 2023 low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellite internet service could become a real thing. Elon Musk's SpaceX, Richard Branson's OneWeb, and Jeff Bezos' Kuiper are moving from "interesting idea" to implementation. From Bloomberg: In May 2019, a single SpaceX rocket launched 60 of a planned 12,000 satellites; in October, the company sought permission for 30,000 more. Both Musk and Branson’s OneWeb have said that partial networks could go into service in 2021. China’s state-owned Aerospace Science and Industry Corp. is proposing a network of 156 satellites by 2022. Bezos’s Amazon.com Inc. has requested permission to launch 3,236 satellites. Yes, there are hurdles and potential problems. But this technology is evolving and it appears that it can work well enough to be competitive with the likes of Comcast. And the advantage is you could be out of range for cell service, many miles from any cable internet, and watching TV on your foldable phone using LEO satellite internet. Oh and you can use it in New York City. As I look at various sources on the web, this does seem doable.
