Default Microsoft Research uses RV10 to provide worldwide wifi coverage

Scientists from Microsoft Research have proposed using existing commercial aircraft flights and air routes to provide worldwide internet coverage at much lower cost than proposed solutions such as Google?s Project Loon (which uses balloons) and Facebook?s Aquila efforts (which uses solar-powered aircraft).

It looks like Microsoft outfitted an RV10 for initial testing. It would be interesting to hear more about this project.

Sure! Once they remove the chemtrail dispensers, they'll have plenty of room and electrical power for the new units.
