There has been a lot of talk about using micro satellites (CubeSats) for Outernet. But, tiny satellites have very limited power output, requiring much larger antennas, especially as bandwidth increases.
“The first step in designing a satellite network is performance
of a satellite link budget analysis. The link budget will determine what
size antennae to use, SSPA or TWTA PA power requirements, link availability
and bit error rate, and in general, the overall customer satisfaction with
Also, telecom satellites require licenses. So, the idea that you can launch a satellite and broadcast whatever you want is rather detached from reality.
In general, commercial satellite operators will broadcast any content that is sent to them, without review. Again, in very general terms, most satellite data networks are considered private and not held to the same standards as terrestrial broadcast TV or radio.
