The moon will be the mobile communications next year

An unidentified executive at the telecom company said the firms had made a decision to set up a 4G network rather than the advanced 5G network as it is still in the testing and trial stage and may not function from the lunar surface.

Moon gets the first mobile network by next year is announced by the leading network Vodafone.

Vodafone stated that it had appointed Nokia as its technology associate to widen a space-grade network which will be a small piece of hardware weighing less than a bag of sugar.

To implement the project will be the company Vodafone Germany.


The network will be located at a base station in the Autonomous Landing and Navigation Module (ALINA) to which duo of Audi Lunar Quattro rovers (the same ones you saw in Alien: Covenant) will be linked.

The planned network will enable PTScientists' lander to broadcast a live video from lunar surface to the audience on earth and facilitate the communication among the lander and rovers.

The rovers will be approaching and studying NASA's Apollo 17 lunar roving vehicle which was used by the last astronauts to walk on the Moon, Commander Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt, who explored the Taurus-Littrow valley in December 1972.

PTScientists from Berlin are vigorously working on the project and planned to blow off the space jet from Cape Canaveral by the end of next year.


The 4G network won't be the exact same as the one we're used to here on Earth, so future astronauts won't be able to travel to the moon and upload pictures to Instagram, but it will broadcast a 4G signal over the 1800MHz frequency band. There are side benefits as well: "The great thing about this [4G] solution is that it saves so much power", PTScientists founder and CEO Robert Bohme proclaimed, "and the less energy we use sending data, the more we have to do science".

The mobile network companies are working with German-based private space firm PTScientists, which is working towards an unprecedented privately funded moon landing.

"It will [also] help advance the communications infrastructure required for academics, industry and educational institutions in conducting lunar research". "These aims have potentially wide-ranging implications for many stakeholders and humanity as a whole".
