BusinessInsider Amazon confirms the existence of the project. "This is a new initiative to launch a constellation of low orbit satellites that will allow high-speed Internet access and low latency in areas in the world where there is a lack or no connection," said the company's spokeswoman.
Amazon does not provide specific starting dates for the first satellites. The company said the project is long-term and provides one day for the service "tens of millions of people who do not have the basic broadband access". Amazon adds that it is open to partnerships with other companies that "share this common vision".
