(Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München) Munich based Laser physicists have developed an extremely powerful broadband infrared light source. This light source opens up a whole new range of opportunities in medicine, life science, and material analysis.
The BBC reports that a SpaceX launch this week, which had the primary aim of putting a Spanish radar satellite into orbit, also carried equipment to trial the delivery of broadband from space. According to the report, by the mid-2020s SpaceX plans to operate more than 4,000 satellites that will be able to connect any […]
A few years back the FCC (under Obama's first FCC boss Julius Genachowski) spent around $300 million on a broadband availability map that did a crap job actually measuring broadband availability. As we noted at the time, the map tended...Show More Summary

Elon Musk’s internet in space project took to the stars Thursday with SpaceX Corp. launching two experimental satellites that will form the base of the company’s Starlink broadband service. The two satellites, named Tintin A and Tintin...Show More Summary
SpaceX has launched the first two prototypes for the global communication satellite service it wants to develop. The company expects to put over 10,000 satellites in orbit. The post SpaceX Launches First Satellites to Extend Broadband Coverage appeared first on ExtremeTech.
“Don’t tell anyone, but the Wi-Fi password is ‘martians,’” Musk says.
SpaceX launched two experimental satellites on Thursday. The satellites are designed to test Starlink, a concept to bathe all of Earth in high-speed broadband internet using a fleet of 12,000 satellites. Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX,...Show More Summary
SpaceX is one step closer to providing low-cost broadband internet access after launching the first two demonstration satellites for its planned satellite constellation Thursday morning. The two demonstration satellites, known as Microsat-2a and Microsat-2b, were the secondary payload on Thursday’s...
The result could be more competition in an industry that's starved of it.
SpaceX hit another orbital milestone on Wednesday: It launched a pair of experimental broadband satellites on a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The test satellites are another step forward for chief executive Elon Musk, who dreams of building a worldwide network of thousands of orbiting devices that can beam Internet […]
FCC might have doomed its preemption case by renouncing authority over broadband.
Elon Musk's company launches two prototype satellites it hopes will be the first of thousands more beaming internet access anywhere in the world.
Consolidated Communications is moving quickly to change the narrative for its business in New England. They recently rebranded FairPoint to Consolidated following its acquisition last year, and today have announced plans to upgrade the company's access network.... [visit site to read more]
