The Internet is available on 85% of the Earth's surface

According to credible sources, the Internet can be accessed on over 85% of the Earth's surface. Internet access is mostly wireless and very cheap. There are special projects for the poorest parts of the Earth, which provide access to the global network for free. However, it includes only a set of basic applications for smartphones.

Zuckerberg’s Aquila project also makes for the spread of the Internet. This is a unique park of drones. The signal emitted by a drone is received by antennas of small towers, which transform it into a Wi-Fi signal for 4G-networks. Due to this, everyone within a 70 kilometer radius, can access the Internet. The wingspan of Aquila is wider than that of Boeing 737, it weighs a hundred times less, and its power consumption can be compared to two or three hair dryers.

Now a person who broadcasts online from the Amazon rainforest, or instantly posts photos directly from Tibetan mountain ranges comes as no surprise.

Антон Дождиков Вот только правительства придумают "глушилки", чтобы подавить такой бесплатный интернет. Очевидно, что государства с трудом будут делиться монополией на полный доступ к информации, в том числе затрагивающей вопросы безопасности. 06 Feb 2019
Станислав Было бы идеально, но все хотят заработать. Если в Европе и развитых странах Азии за него платят огромные деньги, то монопольная компания, владеющая 85% всего мирового Интернета станет высасывать деньги из кошельков. В конце концов, это может вырасти в глобальные конфликты, так как управлять подобной технологией можно будет с подачи совета директоров, видящих лишь выгоду для бизнеса 06 Feb 2019
Nick Tracy 4G won't be around by that time. 5G is already slated to become a major replacement and they may have 6th generation by that time. Wi-Fi will also probably be replaced by that time and fiber optic networks will be more prominent. 06 Feb 2019
Austin Spencer Peters Probably something very similar to this will happen by 2030 06 Feb 2019
