Vodafone and Nokia disclosed that they have a plan to install a 4G mobile internet connection on the moon in 2019. This Network will be used during the time of first private mission to the lunar landscape. This 4G network will give high-definition streaming from the lunar surface to Earth. According to the report of Metro.co.uk, PTScientists, a German firm, will launch a spectacular pioneering expedition to the surface of the Moon in 2019.

Multiple companies are working together to make this mission successful

Audi and telecommunication companies Nokia and Vodafone are working together to install a 4G network which will be their first funded mission to the Moon's surface.

The first 4G network will be installed in a Base Station in Germany. Two lunar rovers by Audi will be connected to the base station.

Nokia has planned to create a sleek design and the main objective of the design would be to weigh less than one Kg. This will be the slimmest and lightest network ever developed.

A statement was given by the PTScientist's founder on the 4G network about to be installed

Robert Bohme, the founder and chief executive of PTScientists, said that this 4G network will be used to study the solar system. He added that if we ever plan to leave the Earth then we must also consider developing infrastructures outside our planet before making a move.

He later added that the mission to the Moon is just to establish and test the elements of the mobile communication network on the surface of the Moon.

In 2019, Nokia will launch its network on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force station in Florida. The cost of this mission will be around £100 million or $130 million.

In comparison to NASA, the average cost of the space launching shuttle is $450 million (£350 million).

The Project could enable HD live streaming videos from lunar landscape

Vodafone confirmed that the base station would be able to broadcast a 4G network by using 1800MHz frequency band and can easily send back the first-ever live High Definition (HD) video to the Moon’s surface.

This video will also be broadcast to other audiences globally via a space link that connects to the server of PTScientists in Berlin’s Mission Control Centre.

One executive involved in this mission said that the decision to set up a 4G mobile internet network rather than a 5G internet connection was made because a 5G network still remains in the trial and testing stage. A 5G network is not stable enough to work properly from the lunar surface.
