Talk about remote and a little more than rural Vodafone and Nokia are installing 4G on the moon for space science.
The moon will have broadband before some of California’s rural communities.
It’s one thing being at the back of the queue for fast broadband – it’s quite another to see the moon pushing in ahead of you. But it’s true: in 2019, the moon will have its own 4G mobile network, powered by space-grade Nokia masts and Vodafone’s 4G signal.

Indeed, 5G was considered for the moon project – but given its still in testing phases, it was ruled out for stability reasons.
The mission will launch in 2019 from Cape Canaveral on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket – the Nokia-built masts will weigh “less than a bag of sugar” to keep the payload weight down.
