Yep. One of several companies that are trying to start up either LEO or MEO satellite services.

I think the answer is to continue to build up the wireless infrastructure. Leave satellite for air and sea internet.

Agreed, except that doesn't seem to be happening. It would seem to me that it would be more cost effective to improve wireless technology versus building a crap ton of satellites and launching them into space. Guess the big corporate companies don't see it that way.

I think it has mainly to do with permit issues. Too much time and they don't want to bother. Although it does seem to make more sense.
