Google Testing 5G Internet Delivery Using Drones

Category: Internet
Posted: 04:28PM

Project Skybender is the latest experiment from Google looking to bring innovations to the world. Testing is currently underway at Spaceport America in New Mexico using a commercial aircraft known as the "Centaur" and unmanned drones from Project Titan. The 5G networking will be provided using millimeter wave transceivers, which the FCC believes could reach speeds from 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s. According to the report, Google "ultimately envisages thousands of high altitude 'self-flying aircraft' delivering Internet access around the world." This joins a number of other projects currently in development at Google that seek to use airborne delivery platforms to bring Internet access to areas that might not have access to it otherwise.
