This startup is trying to beam cheap internet into low-income communities

Starry is a Boston-based internet provider that uses a “hub-and-spoke” model to beam 5G internet into receptors in people’s homes to decrease the cost of internet. Beyond this creative use of technology, the company is also providing its less costly internet services to affordable housing developments in Boston and around the country. By working with Related Companies, a developer that owns over 45,000 affordable housing units, Starry is helping close the digital divide.
