Already without those satellites you have the scenario of one smashed satellite creating domino effect of parts smashing into other satellites. Its amazing that its never happened with all the meteor showers.


Well the good thing about space is that there's a lot of it.

You may be right. I'm still stuck with wondering if it's a good idea, though...

Well, good or bad, it's coming, and there's really nothing, short of global destruction of some sort, that's going to stop it.

So i actaully spent time reading about it.
The 4,000 sats would be in low orbit and have a between 25 and 35ms, similar to the latencies measured for wired Internet services. Current satellite ISPs have latencies of 600ms or more, according to FCC measurements.

Basically the sats are at 800 miles by contrast huges net sats are at 22,000 miles.
Hop counts greatly reduced with sats that link with each other. Frequency used would be in the ka and ku band. Ka 26.5 – 40 GHz and ku 12-18 GHz range.

Your wifi is in the 2.4 GHz, 3.6 GHz, 4.9 GHz, 5 GHz, and 5.9 GHz frequencies range.

Simple answer is to use a VPN. It wont be 100% effective as to preventing TPTB from monitoring your data stream/information but it will somewhat retard there endeavours.
