Blogpril April 8th Number Two – Rambling about Wifi, Drones and The World

(I’m writing a second post today to make up for utterly failing the Blog challenge and missing yesterday. This post is a slightly ridiculous ramble that probably needs a lot more work – I have further thoughts and actual research to do on it, so I’ll put this as a start and continue it tomorrow.)

Some things I got to wondering about while I was on a break at work today

I wonder if wifi will ever completely replace phone data/signal? 

I understand that the logistics are this would be hugely complicated. Universal wifi coverage would require grounded point at regular intervals across vast areas of land, including areas where it would be impractical to do so.

But then again you can have wifi from moving objects (in my home city, you can get it on busses, trains etc) so what about a drone network? Obviously this comes with its own set of issues, not least drones falling out of the sky into people’s heads, though I feel that’s simply a matter of improving the technology.

I quickly googled drones and wifi to see if anyone has tried this. It doesn’t seem so, though most drove enthusiasts seem more concerned with the range that drives can receive wifi rather than the range that they can send it.
