I agree that drones aren't the long-term solution to internet access - Fiber optical cable is. But, there are parts of the world that don't even have clean drinking water or reliable electricity, so a fiber-optic network is only a wonderful dream. The reason I like the idea of drones over satellites is that they can be launched with very little muss or fuss, and they can be launched and operated locally, giving locals a chance to get in on the fun and to hone their tech skills. Space is starting to get very crowded, especially geosynchonus orbit. Also, drones impose less latency, which can be a factor in other things besides video gaming. Finally, the simpler solution is usually the more elegant solution, and who doesn't like elegant solutions?
