Google also is preparing a new project, in which the goal is still the same, namely to provide Internet access to remote areas. As quoted by online news, Google said that the project is named Skybender.This Skybender project will transmit very fast internet networks, 5G, which is allegedly 50 times faster than the 4G LTE network. Even the results of transient testing, 5G internet network is able to break the speed of up 3,6Gbps. Now the interesting part of this project is Skybinder Google no longer uses a hot air balloon, but the use of drones that will emit the Internet network.
Not only that, Google reportedly has leased 15,000 square feet to conduct testing Skybinder project, at the port of spacecraft America, in New Mexico. For this phase, Google will test a prototype of the transmitter that is derived from the drone, using millimeter wave transmitter.
Even Jacques Rudell as professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington said that, the use of millimeter wave transmitter used by Google Skybender project is very appropriate, especially the frequency bands used by smartphone device is now very solid. But he added, that the range of the frequency bands is shorter than the wave transmitter on the smartphone.
But this news has not gotten clarification directly from the Google, so there are many rumors say whether Google plans to use drones as transmitters internet. We wait for further news from Google.
