First test stream of Outernet is a success

On June 24, Syed Karim, Outernet's CEO, watched as information came streaming over an emulation of the satellite broadcast. This simulation tested a few critical assumptions of the Outernet design:

  • Confirmation that a Raspberry Pi coupled with a Linux-compatible DVB-S tuner can create a cheap, reliable, satellite receiver.
  • Early testing of a web-based file delivery system for satellite broadcasts.
  • Validation of a general concept of operations.
Stay tuned for a more detailed updates on Outernet's progress via our blog.

Be a part of the Outernet design process

We have hired a videographer, designer, and web architect to create a new look and feel for Outernet before we switch on our product test. We believe Outernet should be open and democratic from the outset, so we are inviting you to be a part of the design process. Have a logo idea you think we would love?  Is there a website you think looks amazing that we should learn form? Send it to us via our blog and stay tuned for updates.

Meet our Marketing and Communications Lead, Thane Richard

We are excited to welcome Thane Richard to the Outernet team! Thane comes from a background of entrepreneurship and media, beginning with a radio network he founded in Mumbai in 2010 and moving to a journalism startup in Detroit along with some freelance writing along the way. Read his thoughts on why Outernet will change humanity on our blog.

As always, we welcome your feedback and want to hear from you. Write us at hello@outernet.is
