Facebook Will use Drones and Satellites in Dissemination of Internet

  • The King of Social Networks-“Facebook” and the Owner of Facebook “Mark Zuckerburg” blazons the dissemination of Internet Service over Drones, satellites and Lasers! Keeping the wild desires for internet- in mind, Mark Zuckerburg has predicted the future of internet beaming in unimaginable way.


  • It will take time indeed, but then- waits and queues are always fruitful. The disclosure of “Facebook Connectivity Lab” by Mark Zuckerburg on 27th March 2014 revealed the modification in basis of “internet.org”, according to which; dissemination of internet to the third world was spotted through forthcoming future technologies planned by internet.org and Facebook.
  • These future technologies integrate Air-borne methods to beam internet to nearly 6 billion people through drones, lasers and satellites. To initiate the execution of these plans Facebook has deputized members from NASA’s Ames Research Center, Ascenta and National optical Astronomy Observatory on this project.


  • The change in basis of beaming internet by internet.org through Facebook Connectivity Lab comprises the alteration in the wagons that deliver internet, wherein aerially elevated solar powered aircrafts would be capacitated to beam internet through free space optical communication implementing infrared laser beam that tends to transmit data over light, whereas remote areas with minimal population will be availed with internet through low-precinct and geo-concomitant satellites.
  • The batteries of air-crafted drones are presumed to get charged through solar energy, where a monthly maintenance will be carried out by landing them on ground. Facebook on one hand is the social network and Facebook Connectivity Lab will turn it into Network of Networks on other hand.


  • This Project Idea announcement from Mark Zuckerburg may lead as a competitor of Google’s Loon Project where Google assures dissemination of internet through Hot Air Balloon.
