A project approaches Internet via satellite the developing countries

Approximately half of the world-wide population, that is to say, 3,000 million people, not yet has Internet as we meet. For this reason, Astra and Google have decided to lead the project ' O3b' (' Other 3 billion'), that consists of approaching that part of the population not so lucky a network of satellites that will provide Internet to them of low cost with the purpose of to break with the denominated digital breach. This system that has as objective generalizing anywhere in the world the use of Internet, will work by means of a radio network with a main cradle in connections via satellite, according to inform from its Web ( The project ' Other 3 billion Networks' , call thus by the 3,000 million people in the world who not yet have access to Internet (the Anglo-Saxon trillion is equivalent to 1,000 million), will try to connect more to the worked against zones as they are the African continent, the India or concrete zones of central America and the south of this continent. The first eight satellites, of a total of 20, will be sent throughout 2013 and will be placed in the equatorial orbit to mainly cover the part with the South hemisphere of the planet, that is affected by the digital breach. Also, a series of active antennas will be sending signals from a satellite to another one, which will make possible the access to Internet. Later, the operators of telecommunications of each country will be in charge to redistribute this signal to the users. This process will be carried out, in the majority of the occasions, by means of radio networks, WiMax, 3G or 4G, since the optical fiber and the broadband by cable not yet are very developed in these developing countries. A total of 880 million Euros has been reversed to make possible that Internet arrives at these zones. With respect to the positioning of the satellites, these will be placed to 8,063 km of height, very below the geostationary orbit, that is placed to 36,000 km In addition, thanks to ' O3b' the signal takes in raising and lowering around 0.1 seconds, which will allow faster and accessible connections for the population of more than 150 emergent countries.
