Adding detail to a particular section
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?

new name of the reciever
the article calls the reciever "pillar". The new name is "Lantern"
lantern vs pillar
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
