A very good idea

Since the world is divided into people who want to be free, and those who would force others to live according to their authoritarian notions, the free flow of information is crucial. So this is refreshing news.
A small team of workers at a New York based non-profit organization called Media Development Investment Fund (MDIF) has announced its intention to build an "Outernet"—a global network of cube satellites broadcasting Internet data to virtually any person on the planet—for free. The idea, the MDIF website says, is to offer free Internet access to all people, regardless of location, bypassing filtering or other means of censorship.
