New satellites could transform internet

Network will offer high-speed internet access to developing countries left out of fiber-optic network.

    The reach of high-speed internet is about to spread to millions of people around the world who have been largely missing out.

    That's according to the developers of a new network of satellites, which is due to begin launching from South America within hours.

    Al Jazeera's Tarek Bazley explains how it'll work, and why those in developing countries stand to benefit the most.
