Vodafone “makes UK’s first 4G mobile network drone delivery”

Mobile phone network provider Vodafone has completed the UK’s first ever drone delivery over a mobile network, says the company.

“Traditional drones are flown using a radio link with the drone in line of sight but using a mobile network instead could allow drops to remote or distant destinations,” says a company statement.. “The strength of Vodafone’s 4G network allowed the specially adapted drone to fly to one of the most southerly points of the UK and bring cheer to the remote coast watch in Portland Bill, Dorset….We believe this kind of drone connection is the future: the imminent arrival of low-latency 5G will make drone delivery – even in built-up areas – an everyday occurrence, allowing for brand new ways to exchange physical items using digital tech.”
