Google’s Secretive 5G Internet Drone Tests Revealed

It has been learned that Google is testing solar-powered drones in New Mexico for delivering high-speed internet.

Project SkyBender is using drones to experiment with millimetre-wave radio transmissions, one of the technologies that could underpin next generation 5G wireless internet access. High frequency millimetre waves can theoretically transmit gigabits of data every second, up to 40 times more than today’s 4G LTE systems. Google ultimately envisages thousands of high altitude "self-flying aircraft" delivering internet access around the world.
