How Outernet Works

Outernet's filecast is a groundbreaking innovation in broadcasting, marrying radio broadcasting with file delivery, transcending the format and time limitations of traditional radio or TV broadcasting. 

Our filecast differentiates itself from a traditional broadcast by sending information as data files, so content is no longer limited to video and audio. Now, any content format can be sent over a radio signal. Receivers automatically cache these files locally, so users can enjoy flexible, on-demand access to content.

With the global reach of satellite broadcasting, this system is paving a new way to distribute, access, and consume content


Outernet provides a broadcast for the digital age.

The technology behind Outernet consists of the following components: signal, antenna, SDR, amplifier, and free software. 

We have made our hardware components available to everyone, and our signal is free-to-receive, so anyone can build a receiver and use our L-Band service.
