Amazon plans to launch satellites to offer broadband internet
Updated : April 04, 2019 08:52 PM IST
The long-term project will cater to people globally who lack basic access to broadband internet, Amazon said in a statement on Thursday.
Project Kuiper will launch a constellation of low earth orbit satellites that will provide low-latency, high-speed broadband connectivity, the company added.
Amazon's plans come as chief executive officer Jeff Bezos is racing to pull his private space company Blue Origin out of start-up mode and move into production.
