Verizon to Start Selling Wireless Data Plans for Drones

" Verizon Communications Inc. said Thursday it would begin working with drone makers to connect the flying vehicles to Verizon’s wireless network. Drone data plans will start at $25 a month for 1 gigabyte of data and $80 for 10 gigabytes, company officials said in an interview."

I gotta ask , what for?

Better reception in the sky's maybe.

Somebody will always stay up nights coming up with the next big idea, I do not fly myself, but cannot understand why I would want to be online to do it. Just another waste of money for the end user.

I had a Verizon contractor steal from my house but there are also honest installers.

You get what you pay for. I have another cell phone provider and there are spots I cannot get service. It is just the cost of doing business.

Has anyone ever tried FreedomPop (https://www.freedompop.com/phone)? It looks like a pretty good deal, but I am always nervous about those "seems too good to be true" things.
