Moon to get 4G network
According to details, the US space agency has granted fund to the mobile company to build a 4G network on the Moon.
The move will allow future astronauts to access social media accounts in the first step.
Reportedly, the telecom giant has $14.1m (€12m) funding contract from NASa to develop and built a 4G network across the moon.
The new contract is part of a massive $370m (€315m) range of contracts that were issued on October 16.
As per NASA, the system would allow “support lunar surface communications at greater distances, increased speeds, and provide more reliability than current standards.”
Following the installation of a network could help in the development of a permanent future base on Moon.
The idea of 5G infrastructure on Moon has also been discussed; however, a 4G network presently will be adequate as it requires much easier installation and fewer infrastructures.
