|A company called Outernet launched the Lantern, a satellite receiver for Outernet.
"Lantern continuously receives radio waves broadcast by Outernet from space. Lantern turns the signal into digital files, like webpages, news articles, ebooks, videos, and music. Lantern can receive and store any type of digital file on its internal drive. To view the content stored in Lantern, turn on the Wi-Fi hotspot and connect to Lantern with any Wi-Fi enabled device. All you need is a browser.
...Free data forever. Initially, Lantern will receive about 2 MB/day, though we will increase this number in the future. Depending on the success of this campaign, we could stream data at up to 100 MB/day. And you will never have to pay for data, ever. "
Lantern also has internal storage so you can view content even when you’re offline and solar panels to charge its battery if there’s no outlet nearby. Pledge at least $99 (USD) on Indiegogo to get a Lantern.
