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.
