The 5G coverage is the new real deal in town. The 5G Home Internet service is already three years old, and there are a lot of benefits to using it. The 5G technology is seen as a natural and required progression from 4G.

According to The Verge, Amazon’s satellite venture Kuiper is accepting a partnership with the wireless network operator Verizon to provide even more 4G / LTE and 5G access to remote regions across the globe.

Verizon’s cell towers will help Kuiper’s future satellites

Kuiper is expected to come up with some pretty interesting satellites in the future. These beauties will provide connectivity to the cell towers of Verizon.

SpaceX is not the only major brand willing to provide fast internet across the globe. Amazon also has a similarly ambitious project with Kuiper. The intention is to send over 3,000 satellites above the Earth that will be responsible for beaming up more internet access.

Andy Jassy, who is the CEO of Amazon, declared as quoted by The Verge:

There are billions of people without reliable broadband access, and no single company will close the digital divide on its own,

Verizon is a leader in wireless technology and infrastructure, and we’re proud to be working together to explore bringing fast, reliable broadband to the customers and communities who need it most.

Amazon has a more compelling description for its initiative:

Project Kuiper is an initiative to launch a constellation of Low Earth Orbit satellites that will provide low-latency, high-speed broadband connectivity to unserved and underserved communities around the world.

The world sure needs more internet access, as pretty much everything nowadays is made through the help of it! Oddly enough, as of January 2021, only 4.66 billion people across the globe are active internet users, according to Statista. That number leaves over 3 billion people out of the equation.
