Would be nice. And it just makes sense that everyone should have free net, it seems to be more of a right than a consumer product now.


Well as long as there's still powerful CEOs who admit they think that water is not a basic right, I'm not sure that will fly.

I hope that if anything happens to these guys, people react accordingly.

Suspicious in implications. They get to each of us and the NSA is prob at the other end because we take the link willingly for free internet...

maybe no NSA.

That's a pretty big maybe.

The only way there won't be an NSA spying on everything we do.... Is if they are destroyed. It might take multiple nuclear strikes to do that, multiple sites to target...hardened targets.

They are probably here to stay when you think about it a bit.

Thanks for posting this! I think it's a great idea. Even if the Outernet project isn't a success, the things learned from this project will be applied to the next one. And eventually, we will have global networks that are out of reach of the power hungry psychos that seem to run everything now.

If it's coupled with the breakthroughs we have seen in decentralized networks, (BitTorrent, Bitcoin, etc) it will completely change the power structures of the whole world.

Change can be scary and unpredictable, but as it stands now, I have no reason to be loyal to the current system, and look forward to something better.

I pay 50$ Aus for 3gig of "wireless" I have been extorted like that for years.. there is no other way unless i move house, that isn't an option "just for net"

this cannot come soon enough, the rates as is are WAY to high, and the excuses for it are thin and weak.

I wont weep for the loss of the current paradigm.. based on greed.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Google jump at this over Gates and Zuckerman.

I was gonna say that if they plan on giving it for free they will have to convince congress and a whole lot of businesses it is a basic human right to have Internet for free.

It's the net....you should still be able to use IP masking and BTGuard and all the other lovely little programs that can hide us from those who seek us.

Wait wait wait!!!

Who actually controls the internet?

Google uses it to control parts of it but who is the big Kahuna that actually controls THE INTERNET?

Which company is the one who controls the the net, dark net, internet, who holds all the broadband that websties buy and put up their sites?

Take it to the foundation internet who controls that? What company or person?

No-one 'owns' the internet. It's just computers talking to each other over the telecommunications network...so for the time being telecommunications providers provide 'access' to the internet.

If satellites are launched that can broadcast Wifi, then with Wifi enabled on your tablet, or phone, or PC....you would have free access to a communications network that allows communication with other computers. No-one would own it....but someone would own the satellites.

I think it would be DARPA or the DOD. Al Gore also.

So all they need is "tens" of millions of dollars to research, plan, design,
and launch "enough" satellites to cover the entire earth with free wifi...?

Hmmmm....

As you can see by the other replies here to this, its the "Its gonna be FREE!!!" implication that will make millions go ga ga, and not even think of the implications that that is how they got to us. By offering something for nothing that had hidden electronics or monitors built in to monitor us.

We all want something for nothing rt? Make it about the internet, and people will go ape to "get theirs". It sound like a trick. Like most advertising...find a way to get us interested....

Except that the principals are looking for donations - not "interests" looking for control. Be interesting to see how it all pans out. Whatever which way, I hope it happens - and think it will. Hopefully, to be the free and universally accessible Outernet we all thought the Internet might be.
