AT&T Embraces Flying COWs

Nothing to do with the momentarily aerial bovine in the 1996 movie "Twister", but AT&T has a plan to put flying COWs to work. The COW here is a "Cell On Wings", an airborne mini cell tower on a drone which can help augment existing cell network resources.
AT&T sees them being shipped into disaster zones to provide coverage when infrastructure is damaged, flying over crowded venues to provide more bandwidth for those below, or as a stopgap measure for remote locations.
