Amazon’s plan to launch 3,236 satellites to build a network to provide Broadband Internet

Amazon on Thursday confirmed it is working on a project to deploy a network of satellites for high-speed internet service in underserved parts of the world.



“Project Kuiper” is Amazon’s plan to launch 3,236 satellites to build a network to provide global high-speed internet.

"Project Kuiper is a new initiative to launch a constellation of low earth orbit satellites that will provide low-latency, high-speed broadband connectivity to unserved and underserved communities around the world,"

This is a long-term project that envisions serving tens of millions of people who lack basic access to broadband internet."

The filings described a plan to put 3,236 satellites in low orbit  at altitudes ranging from 367 miles (590 kilometres) to 391 miles (630-kilometre)

The frontier of space is internationally agreed to be 62 miles (100 kilometres) above Earth, known as the Karman Line.

The Seattle-based online powerhouse was looking to partner with like-minded companies on the effort.

Amazon would be one of several companies seeking to use satellites to deliver Internet to remote areas including Elon Musk's SpaceX and OneWeb, a venture-backed startup with funding from Japan's SoftBank, Airbus and chipmaker Qualcomm.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates helped fund Teledesic, in an effort to build low Earth satellites to provide Internet service. Yet Teledesic closed in 2002, after racking up more than $9 billion costs.
