Submission + - Facebook Wants Drones To Connect The Developing World (techweekeurope.co.uk)

judgecorp writes: Facebook is reportedly hoping to buy drone specialist Titan Aerospace in order to provide airborne relays for Internet connectivity in developing countries, as part of its internet.org project. The solar-powered drones are classified as "atmospheric satellites" and can fly for five years. The rumoured project sounds quite similar to Google's Project Loon which proposes using balloons for the same job.
