With the ongoing trend of satellite based Internet and data transmission, Lacuna Space looks into joining the fun. The company is based in United Kingdom and is showing exponential growth in terms of media coverage. Currently there are two satellites orbiting our planet, launched by the company on a Soyuz-2 rocket, with the third one being in preparation for launch. Lacuna Space has launched their first testing satellite in April of 2019, with operation satellites following after all the approvals went through. The operation satellites will be launched in sequences, with the technology demonstration of commercial services to happen by the end of this year.

Lacuna Space’s satellite technology is looking into improving the planet’s coverage for IoT purposes, so there won’t be any uncovered areas anywhere, regardless of how desolate and difficult to reach that area might be. This is a major benefit coming along with satellite Internet, but keep in mind that IoT satellites are designed specifically for research purposes such as barometers, GPS guidance for farming machinery etc. Depending on Lacuna’s policy regarding monthly data plans, we are already looking forward towards competition in the IoT satellite space, which usually benefits the end user. We are particularly excited about asset monitoring as you might be able to put trackers on your car or bicycle and track its position in case it gets stolen – the options are numerous, even with limited bandwidth and speeds.
