This is a long shot question but would it be possible to take your home wifi, hook it up to a transmitter that broadcasts to a satellite, and then the satellite would broadcast down to your phone, giving you service anywhere but with your home internet?Wifi Diagram

That won’t work, satellite and WiFi are very different protocols using different physical transmitters and receivers as well as different protocols to communicate.

  • So couldn't you just get something that would translate the different protocols? – Josiah Br Jan 2 '18 at 23:35
  • No, it requires very different hardware. – Teun Vink Jan 3 '18 at 6:23
