No one has answered so I will jump in.
From what I understand Outernet is trying to broadcast a worldwide ONEWAY data feed of Internet related information called the “Library” to every one on earth for free. Which can then be buffered onto a hard drive and shared by WiFi to users mobile and fixed computing devices.
In order to do this cost effectively Outernet is renting for the time being satellite capability from established satellite providers.
Two days ago Outernet said they would be able to provide a signal to the Philippines on a leased satellite C Band transponder on Asiasat 5. C band is a kind of “Older Technology” that requires larger Dish antennas to pick up the Outernet signal. My preliminary unconfirmed assessment is a 80 cm dish will work. (This could be wrong . It could be much bigger needed.)
Outernet Satellite receiver hardware solutions are intended in the future to be fully Open source to connect to the Outernet satellites.
The first choice of hardware I believe is Pillar which is basically a mashing together of several off the shelf easily available components to make a hybrid open source satellite Data receiver. Once you add the appropriate Dish antenna you will be able to aim at the Outernet Satellite and start receiving the Outernet Library database for free.
Lantern satellite receiver is available from Outernet as a fully assembled small solar powered stand alone unit and once all of the proposed high powered Outernet satellites are transmitting down from Space you will be able to receive the Outernet Library data by just putting it in the sun. My understanding is that a Lantern plus a cable connection to a large stationary C Band dish satellite antenna should receive Asiasat 5 Outernet data feed in the Philippines today.
Please note these comments are only my understanding of a project that is moving excitingly fast and by necessity things are changing.
