A New York-based technology organization, Media Development Investment Fund, is aiming to provide a free Wi-Fi service, called the “outernet”, to everyone on Earth by the year 2016.
The organization are currently raising funds for the project and are hoping to raise millions of dollars. As part of the “outernet” project, the organization plans to launch hundreds of miniature satellites into low Earth orbit by June 2015.
The organization claim they will be using datacasting technology to send data over wide radio waves, in order to provide the free Wi-Fi service and to make the internet accessible for free to anyone in the world.
The project also plans to provide free and unrestricted/uncensored access to the internet for people in countries such as North Korea and China where governments have censored online activity.
