    > In reality, WiFi gear can’t tune in to the high-frequency transmissions the satellites beam down

    Which means they probably did need to explain this.

    Nexus is doing this with Vector Space Systems. This is actually going to happen, who knows what Musk is going to do.

    Anyone savvy on the latest advances in Satellite internet tech and the system musk is proposing ( achievable latency, bandwidth etc. )

    I’ve used it a couple of times and it pretty much sucked for everything.
