Importance[edit]

Is this article better classed as high importance? George8211 / T 10:55, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Adding detail to a particular section[edit]

Since more detail, which I cannot provide, might be needed towards where it says "which then can be accessed when a Wi-Fi dongle is connected to the Raspberry Pi and setup correctly. Currently, this method only works with specific components when dealing with the USB satellite tuner and USB Wi-Fi dongles", someone might want to add detail to clarify any confusion a person might have reading this section.

Also, should there be more detail about the Outernet company? Or would that be in a separate article?

lantern vs pillar[edit]

The article states that the Pillar project has been renamed to Lantern. This is incorrect. Pillar uses ku-band signals and require a dish to pick up. Lantern uses L-Band and UHF and receives signals on its own, however a satellite dish can be connected to receive the higher bandwidth ku-band, effectively turning it into a Pillar. Lantern is more expensive than Pillar, however Pillar does require a dish. Pillar is being marketed as a mass use device, and Lantern for individuals/families

Satellites are fake...[edit]

This is nothing more than a overhyped antenna.

1. HIV has never lead to AIDS 2. NASA is a joke

3. Satellites were invented by Arthur C. Clarke and then suddenly became real?? The exposure is simple. We are going after this entire industry. Go here morons: Science Digest, MIT, Bible prove earth is flat...This is another hyped up hoax brought to you by the American Media and NASA. What a joke. The illuminati own everything. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:E000:FA41:C200:6C73:3A76:BDC5:23FA (talk) 01:55, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
