Meta’s Connectivity Division, home of satellite and drone internet experiments has been unplugged

Share via:

The company confirmed that Meta has quietly reabsorbed the resources of its “Connectivity” division. For nearly a decade, this was the location of the former Facebook’s experimental internet and telecommunications efforts, ranging from satellites (which exploded) to drones (which crashed) to apps (which were disputed) and other more traditional infrastructure (appreciated and ongoing).

Meta Connectivity’s staff and projects, or what remains of them after the impending layoffs, will be divided between its Infrastructure and Central Products divisions, as first reported by Light Reading. Although it is unclear which resources and people will remain, the complete reduction of Connectivity suggests that the more unconventional approaches to providing internet are likely to be gone for good.
