Facebook vs. Google with Internet access from satellites

There has always been the Facebook vs. Google when it comes to news, and recently a key member of Google’s satellite team left and headed for Facebook.

The key member is Michael Tseytlin and now joins Facebook’s Connectivity Lab, which develops satellite technology according to WSJ. This is soon after Google lost satellite head Greg Wyler this month, and the Google satellite project was being worked on by Tseytlin.

Both Google and Facebook are going head-to-head to send Internet access from satellites to earth, this is what they call the space race, and only one will become the clear leader. If everyone keeps leaving Google then we can see Facebook being the victors here.

There are billions around the world that cannot access the Internet, and this is where Facebook wants to make a change to that. These developing countries with granted access would mean a great deal, using satellites to beam Internet access would be highly beneficial and obviously more revenue.

Do you think Google or Facebook will win the race when it comes to sending Internet access from satellites to earth?
