At MWC Barcelona 2023 we talked to the exhibitors at the GSMA Foundry Innovation Showcase about the innovative new projects they are working on. World Mobile showcased a scale model of an aerostat – an unpowered balloon that provides connectivity in a wide area and is tethered to the ground with a high-speed fibre connection. Mobile Services can be deployed using aerostats to cover sparse populations over large areas economically and enhanced coverage at sea. The potential is to reach millions of people who are not served with Mobile or Internet services.
