Facebook is Building a Drone to Bring 4.1 Billion People Online

Drones can do it all, now they are delivering Internet access to remote geographies. Facebook’s Aquila drone is a UAV designed to connect 4.1 billion more people (and possible new Facebook users) to the Internet.

Much more than “just” a drone, Facebook’s high flying unmanned wing, Aquila, will eventually use radio technology to beam connections to the remote areas of the globe that otherwise don’t have access to the internet.

Facebook’s goal is to reach some of the 4.1 billion people who aren’t already connected to the internet.

Facebook’s drone will beam the internet everywhere
