LOW COST GLOBAL DATA FOR IOT

Swarm provides low-bandwidth satellite connectivity for only $5/month using ultra-small satellites in a low orbit. Swarm satellites cover every point on Earth, enabling IoT devices to affordably operate in any location.
As an ‘explorer’, the potential implications this has on my awaited RISC-V uconsole are striking. Signal… anywhere?! I wonder how the modem could fit.
The data rate may be minuscule, but I think if one was conservative with binaries it would be enough for at least primitive messaging. Regardless, I think this finding is relevant to the community and many may find it interesting if not already aware of Swarm. I would enjoy hearing others’ thoughts and ideas, opening a discussion on this network and the like.
