In this aspect, Facebook remains one of the top companies to lend its efforts. After trying its hand in crafting passenger jet-sized and solar-powered drones to provide internet access, Facebook is up with its plans to launch satellites.
The discussion was related to small, low Earth orbit satellite launches.
The new device is designed to “efficiently provide broadband access to unserved and underserved areas throughout the world,” according to an application the Facebook appears to have filed with the FCC under the name PointView Tech LLC.”
The other notable companies who are working in the same directions are Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Softbank-backed OneWeb. SpaceXhas already launched a couple of its satellites which will be part of its Starlink satellites project.
The accident was a major setback for the social networking company. Soon after that, Facebook shifted its focus to the solar-powered drone to cover the secluded areas of the globe, but this project also wasn’t able to make any headway due to Google’s parent company Alphabet’s interest in high-altitude balloons.
