It seems Facebook is at it as well as google. Source Maybe im just old fashioned but, how and why would UAV help the internet?



Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's chief executive, has unveiled plans to beam broadband connections from the skies, using satellites, lasers and unmanned high-altitude aircraft designed by the 51-year old British engineer Andrew Cox.
More importantly, are people buying this reason?




In our effort to connect the whole world with Internet.org, we've been working on ways to beam internet to people from the sky," Zuckerberg wrote on his blog. "Today, we're sharing some details of the work Facebook's Connectivity Lab is doing to build drones, satellites … and lasers to deliver the internet to everyone.
I don't know, Mr. Zuckerberg. Something smells a lot fishy here

Zuckerberg is trying to make out that they are doing this purely out of the goodness of their hearts but in reality it's to get more Facebook users which means more ad revenues.

It's all about money.

My first thought ... exactly. Once he owns the drones, who's to stop him from using them for other purposes?
