Information about the project
The UniversalNet
The UniversalNet, or "U-Net," is a new and unique wireless communications-network, based on new satellite technology that covers the entire earth, providing universal media-access DIRECTLY to all users, on every point of the globe. Broadcast-reception (i.e. all commercial/public local and satellite television and radio) is completely free to all persons, while likewise all persons can purchase air-time to broadcast their own desired content to any location. Telephone and broadband data-internet services are likewise provided on a “per-use” payment-basis, without need for subscriptions or service-contracts, and with much lower costs and higher quality than any current systems.
International implementation
Planned for future from 25/01/2010 to 01/01/2016
