MSCI announced their global satellite communications constellation called COMMStellation™ this morning in a press release (http://smr.newswire.ca/en/microsat-systems-canada-inc/msci-announces-a-global-satellite-communications-constellation. This is an exciting day for Canadians as COMMStellationTM will be the largest constellation of microsatellites ever launched into space.
This initiative was designed to address the requirements from governments all over the world to provide Internet access to all of their citizens. COMMStellationTM can provide necessary backhaul to connect rural and remote areas that would be too expensive to connect with fibre, to the Internet. In the well served urban areas, COMMStellationTM can provide additional backhaul capacity for data-transfer to help alleviate network clogging.
