Orbital Internet is a term that has been coined to describe the next-generation of internet connectivity. It relies on low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites to provide broadband access to rural and underserved areas, as well as improve speeds and reliability in urban areas. LEO satellites orbit at a much lower altitude than traditional geostationary satellites, which means they can cover more area with less latency. This makes Orbital Internet an attractive option for connecting people in remote or difficult-to-reach locations around the world.
Some of the emerging trends in Orbital Internet include the development of low-cost satellites, the use of novel orbits to improve coverage, and the deployment of new technologies to enable higher data rates.
