In another blow to the "middle-of-nowhere", the huge "Telstar 19 Vantage" satellite that was launched last night by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will bring (even more) high-speed broadband Internet service to most of the North Atlantic. Primarily targeting airline passengers, this also implies much greater coverage for those sailing across the North Atlantic. Now you can stream the latest episode of your favorite Netflix series when you're 500 miles from any land... and then chat about it live with your friends back home. There's no escape! Not even from mindless diversions!
PS: Looking for a mindless summer diversion? "Cobra Kai" was really good. No kidding.
