A battle for the future of human communication is unfolding right now, in the skies above our heads. Two rival billionaires, commanding unimaginable resources with unprecedented intellectual knowhow, are duking it out for lasting supremacy over the airwaves. It’s a clash that could quite literally change the way humans interact with each other, forever.
Sounds a little dramatic? Perhaps. See what you think, as we size up the tussle between two tech titans, and ask how Amazon wants to compete with SpaceX’s Starlink.
For context, it’s important to note that right now, in 2021, around half of the world’s population still lacks reliable internet access. And this problem isn’t going to magically go away, considering most of those without internet live in rural, poverty-stricken or otherwise hard to reach areas. Nobody is in any hurry to lay expensive underground cables to those remote corners, put it that way.
