Nokia is already preparing to provide 4G internet on the Moon, even though NASA’s Artemis missions aren’t anticipated to return human boots to the Moon until at least 2025.
In 2020, Nokia said that NASA had selected it to build the first mobile network on the moon. Nokia is currently making an effort to finish the project after over three years.
According to news reports from CNBC, Nokia plans to have 4G internet operating on the moon by the end of this year. The Finland-based company will use SpaceX rockets to deliver the essential equipment to the Moon.
From a base affixed to a Nova-C lunar lander, the network will operate. Moreover, Lunar Outpost’s solar-powered rover will be provided as part of the mission.
