Facebook successfully tests laser drones in UK skies: Internet for all
Facebook is testing big, solar-powered drones in the skies over the UK that will use lasers to beam internet access down to the ground and provide connections to rural and internet-free zones.
These drones are aimed at connection the whole world and will be able to affordably serve the 10% of the world’s population that live in remote communities that doesn't have an existing internet infrastructure. Facebook’s internet.org initiative aims to connect the next billion people to the internet, which will create new markets for its social network which already connects 1.39 billion monthly active users.http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/mar/27/facebook-successfully-tests-laser-drones-uk-skies
