Vyralize: Google plans to bring WiFi to remote parts of Africa and Asia using low frequency white space television airwaves.
I love you Google. You find the websites, answer my questions, and find where I need to go. You can have my personal contact info anytime.
umm.... what about lightning storms?
google chrome attracts lighting. ALso this is great news!!
how "high-altitude" exactly? basic wifi only reaches about 30-80 feet.
@project - you missed the part about white spaces.
wifi is the last thing africa needs to be worrying about. first goal of africans need to be get food. second goal is to get to south africa and get educated. third goal is to move to another country save your money and bring the rest of your family over. tell the people who are already in africa to stop having kids so its cheaper to bring them over and they can have kids in america and or a better country. goals are easy if you have nothing to lose.
This was a really ignorant statement man
Sigh* You just went full retard. You do know Africa is a continent, made up of many different countries. Some do way better than others, but you only get to hear about the struggling places who don't want to be imperialized and can care less for capitalism.
or they could start an online business? Lol America is going to hell anyway. Look at xbox one.
America already is hell, dude, lol.
well hey! Still have the freedom to get fatter!!! :)
How about using these in America? People just assume America has this great internet when in fact it's horrible compared to other developed nations. Not only is it slower, it's also much more expensive because there's no competition. And that's the people that CAN get broadband. For rural America, they're STILL stuck with dial up or rip-off satellite internet. Believe it or not, AOL still makes a fortune off of dial-up because of how many people are stuck with it(dial-up) as their only option.
You're absolutely correct. I live in a small town, and I only have *one* ISP I can choose from -- friggin' ATT. I hate them so much... The service is unreliable, the net can go down at any time, they'll do prolonged periods of maintenance without warning you, etc. Not to mention the speeds are poor. I love how there's a Verizon store here, yet they mysteriously don't offer internet service here... ATT has a monopoly here and it sucks. People who live deeper in the woods, I don't even know if they can get internet. Most likely just satellite.
