Soon you can send your data above the Cloud, because Elon Musk’s Space intends to build a constellation of 4,000 satellites capable of beaming the Internet to the most remote regions of the earth.

The plan, outlined in a request to the Federal Communications Commission, would transform Musk’s rocket company into a new Internet service provider.

If all goes according to plan, the tests could be underway by 2016, and the satellites and Internet in operation within five years.

Musk said this project would “be a real enabler for people in poorer regions of the world” as well as help improve the Internet in the U.S., “where people are stuck with Time Warner or Comcast.”

Google and Facebook have dumped their satellite plans.
