TEXT files from SPACE..yes SPACE and you only paid $99.00.
What Outernet has achieved is truly remarkable.
The moment you step out into the Wilderness your phone will stop working but that $99.00 Outernet L-Band Satellite receiver WILL keep receiving weather, news, etc.
Outernet cannot nor should it be, all things to all people.
But to remote communities, fishermen, Offshore sailors, Adventurers, Cyclone victims, it truly can be an amazing information device.
