Open?
Will the Internet connectivity available from these satellites favor certain sites -- like Facebook -- or will it be completely open?

Re: competition in space
Yes it will be interesting to see how this develops. The "...world's largest constellation of 648 low-orbit satellites to make high-speed Internet and telephony available to billions of people" seems like a stupendous goal. But, at many billions of dollars to invest in the project, I wonder how long it may take to be profitable and to get it actually working. And just how much of the project is dollar centered vs. humanitarian?

Re: competition in space
I nearly fell out of my chair as I was on my Daily Review a few days ago and saw Musk's plan to deploy the satellites to fulfill his vision to colonize Mars: http://thenextweb.com/insider/2015/01/17/elon-musk-going-build-internet-space/  This is as I reviewed from Tesla that it is yet to be profitable til 2020...glad to see this though..we can never be connected enough I suppose.

" It'll be interesting to see how the launches go and how competition shapes up. All good news for the unconnected!"

I hope this is the lines along which the unconnected will be developing. Competing markets closely associated with launching satellites in space would also benefit from this space-race.

competition in space
There seems to be some interesting competitive dynamics going on behind the scenes of the satellite industry. Wyler is the man when it comes to getting things started, but what happened with him and Google and then him and Elon Musk's SpaceX? It'll be interesting to see how the launches go and how competition shapes up. All good news for the unconnected!
