AT&T Restores Cell Service in Puerto Rico with “Flying COW” Drone

In Puerto Rico, thanks to fast-track approval given buy the FAA, drones are now part of the recovery effort. Specifically drones are being used to restore voice, data and Internet services to the entire island. A great example of this is the AT&T "Flying COW" (Cell on Wings). The deployment of the "Flying COW" in Puerto Rico is unique because it's the first time a drone has been successfully used to connect residents to services post disaster. The project has been hugely successful too; AT&T is reporting 80% of Puerto Rico's cell customers now have service (up from 63%).
