See The Drone That Is Years Ahead Of Google And Facebook

As you may know, Airbus is developing a high-altitude, solar-powered drone that can stay aloft indefinitely. It could deliver wireless service where towers are too hard or too expensive to maintain. It’s called Zephyr 8.
In this video, the Airbus Engineering team tells you their incredible story of making an Internet drone.
