Community WIFI direct from satellite, is now technically possible.

The latest developments in LEO, which is short for Low Earth Orbit satellite, allow direct connection between a LEO Satellite, and a standard smartphone.

Being able to connect directly to a standard smartphone, lowers the costs of providing connectivity to remote locations.

This also means that that smartphone can be tethered to, thus creating a WIFI hotspot.

The tethering ability of the modern smartphone can form the heart of cheap community WIFI.

Using a low-cost community WIFI router, based on recycled smartphone components, we can deliver connectivity at a lower cost.

The community WIFI router created by Craig Miles is solar-charged.

The unit can be roof or tree-mounted.

To see the WIFI unit, watch my TEDx interview. here.
