Astrome is revolutionizing internet delivery through its innovative millimetre wave wireless communication technology. The company aims to launch a constellation of 198 ultra-High Throughput Satellites(ultra-HTS) in Low Earth Orbit called SpaceNet. The total network capacity of SpaceNet will be 24Tbps. This constellation will have an order of magnitude lower infrastructure cost per Gbps when compared to other constellations that are being launched. The satellites cover all the regions between 38 degree North and South latitudes. This include South-Asia, South-east Asia, Africa, Australia, Middle East, South America and North America (Partially) and major seas.
The three main applications for SpaceNet internet services are:
1. Maritime Connectivity: Maritime users suffer from low bandwidth or prohibitively expensive satellite connectivity. Astrome’s innovative technology will provide high bandwidth connectivity over the ocean at affordable cost.
2. Satellite Backhaul: Satellites enable 4G/5G services to be delivered in rural remote areas where fibre backbone is not necessarily present. With this service, Astrome aims to enable telecom operators and internet service providers to launch their broadband, 4G and 5G services in rural and remote areas.
3. Direct-to-Home (DTH) Internet: Astrome will also provide in some geographies, Direct-to-Home internet connections to consumers. A pizza-box-sized equipment on roof-top will enable consumer to avail Astrome’s internet services.
Astrome’s financial layer is blockchain enabled, allowing it to deliver its internet services faster and more efficiently while at the same time preparing for the era of Web3.0.
Astrome is selling its internet service tokens called SpaceWave (SPW) starting from July 23rd, 2019.
