Will Space X Close Digital Divide?

Elon Musk is known for his brash plans for interplanetary and under-the-earth travel, but his real impact may be to close the world’s digital divide.

Next year SpaceX will launch satellite internet connectivity for the world.  Or maybe not. Over the past 15 years, Digital Divide Institute has watched as other billionaires (e.g. Bill Gates) and big companies (Google, Facebook) have announced such plans. All failed.

Without announcing details, we at DDI suspect Musk will have the same fate.
