Aimed at providing high-speed wireless internet connectivity to all towns and villages across India, ISRO will be launching the first satellite — GSAT-19 — in this class in January 2017.
“We are now going to send satellites that will provide state-of-the-art wireless technology. Today, telephones have gone on the Web and it will not be long before television also migrates to the internet,” said Tapan Misra, director of Space Applications Centre, an important arm of ISRO.
According to Misra, GSAT-19 will act as a “test satellite” for the 4,000 kg GSAT-11 that is expected to eliminate cable-wires and connect televisions and other communication devices to all Indian homes through high-speed wireless service.
