Japan Launches High Speed Internet Satellite

Japan launched a rocket carrying a satellite that may speed up the Internet on Saturday evening. The WINDS satellite promises to deliver speeds up to 1.2 gigabytes per second.

The WINDS satellite is a joint venture between Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. The rocket took off for space at 5:55 p.m. from Japan’s Yoshinobu Launch Complex at the Tanegashima Space Center.

If the satellite proves to be a successful subscribers with dishes will be able to surf the net at an amazing speed.

“Among other uses, this will make possible great advances in telemedicine, which will bring high-quality medical treatment to remote areas, and in distance education, connecting students and teachers separated by great distances,” JAXA said.
