3,000 satellites in space for the internet deprived people worldwide
In order to provide fast broadband internet services to the deprived population of the world, online-based trading firm Amazon has planned to set up more than 3,000 satellites in space.
To this end, the company’s chairman and founder Jeff Bezos took a project entitled “Project Kuiper”. The main goal of the project is to assure high speed broadband internet service from any end of the world. For this, 3,236 of the artificial satellite will be transmitted to space.
Under this project Amazon will start launching thousands of satellites to provide internet service around the world for deprived people. Amazon has advertised this week for new people in terms of a new project called ‘Project Kuiper’.
On the basis of a statement from Amazon, British-based The Independent said that Kuiper project is the latest in the world’s latest Bezos venture to establish a series of satellites in the low orbit of Earth. Through this, it will be possible to provide high-speed broadband services to the internet deprived populations of the world. It has also been stated in the statement that this long-term project was taken to serve the millions of people deprived of the least opportunity to access the broadband service.
Jeff Bezos has already spent $ 1 billion in a space project named ‘Blue Origin’, sponsored by the US Army.
Media CNBC told that Amazon joined other organizations in the race to provide the next generation broadband internet service. To this end, the company has appointed a few former officials who had been working on the SpaceX satellite.
SpaceX chief Elon Mask sent two artificial satellites in space under his ‘Stirling’ project last year. His project has been set for sending about 4,500 artificial satellites.

Organizations like LeoSat and Telesat, formerly Telesat Canada are working on this type of service.
There’s no time structure for when Amazon’s satellites might be launched into orbit, but it will have concernment to receive the Federal Communications Commission’s vindication before it can do so.
