Alphabet’s project to bring the internet to remote areas | Digital Trends Spanish

The Loon project, with which Google wanted to bring the internet to the entire planet through balloons in the stratosphere, was abandoned at the beginning of the year. However, the technology proposed in this system has served as the basis for the Taara Project, which aims to bring broadband to areas where fiber optics do not reach. For this, the managers have relied on optical wireless communications to offer a faster and cheaper internet service. This project has already been tested between the cities of Brazzaville (capital of the Republic of the Congo) and Kinshasa (capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo), between which there are 5 kilometers of distance. Of course, the Congo River runs between them, which is why a 400-kilometer deployment was necessary in order to border t...

The iPhone 13 could offer satellite communication | Digital Trends Spanish

Can you imagine being able to make calls or send messages even if you don't have coverage? Well, it seems that the next iPhone could offer this possibility. According to a report by trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported by MacRumors, the new iPhone 13 will have a communication system through satellites in low orbit known as Low Earth Orbit (LEO, for its acronym in English). Kuo hopes that the new iPhone 13s will have the customized Qualcomm X60 modem, so that in addition to offering compatibility with 5G networks it also offers the possibility of satellite communications, something that would help users in rural areas where coverage sometimes it is scarce. Apple would be the first manufacturer to incorporate this type of connectivity, since the only modem (the X65) that could provide ...

Elon Musk wants to snatch Starlink brand from Mexican company | Digital Trends Spanish

SpaceX and Elon Musk's project for satellite internet called Starlink is currently in some trouble. But not because of its operation as such, but because of the brand: the Mexican company StarGroup is denouncing that SpaceX wants to remove the Starlink brand from them.

These services operate under a satellite system and allow access to the internet or television to rural sectors or those without coverage from the more traditional internet companies. According to experts in industrial and intellectual property, the StarGroup Starlink is the first in the world and there has been no previous trademark registration with the same name. In Mexico, this registry dates from...

Starlink would offer worldwide coverage in September | Digital Trends Spanish

Starlink, SpaceX's satellite internet service, could reach global coverage in September. However, Elon Musk's company must first receive clearance from the regulators in each of the countries where it plans to operate. At a press conference, the president of the company, Gwynne Shotwell, said that the service will be able to offer continuous global coverage when the 1,800 satellites that SpaceX has deployed reach their operational orbit. The aerospace corporation expects that to happen as soon as September this year and its long-term goal is to deploy a total of 42,000 satellites over the next few years. Illustration.

Elon Musk: Mars has no laws and I will govern myself there | Digital Trends Spanish

The great dream of Elon Musk and in reality of the entire human race is to find a place in the universe to settle once the Earth vanishes after human contamination or by global warming or by the collision of a large meteorite. The truth is that the owner of Tesla has already ventured that he plans to place a self-sustaining colony on Mars and these days an even better curiosity was discovered. It turns out that a tweeter inquired into the contract conditions of SpaceX's internet service, Starlink, and in these was a legal principle that spoke of self-government on the Red Planet. "Called 'Laws that govern', the section establishes that SpaceX will not comply with international laws beyond the Earth and Moon, but will adopt principles of self-government 'established in good faith'",...
