Elon Musk wants to use satellites to bring cheap internet to the masses

When Elon Musk isn’t revolutionizing the automotive industry, the rapid transit industry, or the private space travel industries, he’s looking to revolutionize global communications systems. The renowned entrepreneur is working on a plan that would use satellites to bring affordable, high-speed internet to billions of people across the globe who don’t currently have access to it.  

Where does Elon Musk find the time? When the ambitious entrepreneur isn’t busy dreaming up the future of electric vehicles, or the future of space travel, he seems to either enjoy spending his time playing Kerbal Space Program or pondering up new ways that he can effect massive change in an otherwise stagnant technological field. In this case, Musk has said that he wants to create a brand-new global communications system that would be able to provide low-cost Internet service that’s of a reasonable speed (and good connectivity) to the billions around the world who don’t have it. Said service would allegedly be as fast as the fiber-optic connectivity that is ever-so-slowly being deployed around various U.S. cities at the moment.
