Internet for the World
Satellite Internet access is Internet access provided through communications satellites.
This works by satellite constellation. A satellite constellation is a group of artificial satellites working in concert. Such a constellation can be considered to be a number of satellites with coordinated ground coverage, operating together under shared control, synchronized so that they overlap well in coverage.
The OneWeb satellite constellation—formerly known as WorldVu—is a proposed constellation of approximately 882 satellites expected to provide global Internet broadband service to individual consumers as early as 2019.
