Group plans to beam free Internet across the globe from space

Group plans to beam free Internet across the globe from space
By Eric W. DolanThursday, February 10, 2011 14:32 EDT The charity group A Human Right said it was planning to purchase a satellite that would provide free basic Internet access to developing countries around the world. The group, which was founded by 25-year-old Kosta Grammatis, is currently raising money to buy the TerreStar-1, the largest commercial communications satellite ever built. The group hopes to raise $150,000 to finalize a business plan, investigate the legal and business aspects of submitting a bid for the satellite, and hire engineers to turn the plan into a reality. “We believe that Internet access is a tool that allows people to help themselves – a tool so vital that it should be considered a universal human right,” the website for Buy This Satellite stated. Nearly 5 billion out of the world’s 6.9 billion people don’t have access to the Internet. The group has already managed to raise $44,781. Eric W. Eric W.
