Drone Satellites Technically a drone is not a satellite. A satellite needs to go high up into the stratosphere. However, in order to explain the concept, it will do the job.

Considering satellites are going from higher altitudes to lower altitudes, we need to ask... How low can they get?

The principle of a satellite is to spread out communication signals on a large area. The culprit is signals take some time to go up and down. The lower the satellites, the faster they are, and the more needed, since lower satellites have less coverage.

Drone satellites, in terms of hovering on a fixed position above a city, can provide a larger coverage than existing communication towers, and at a lower cost.

These drone satellites will have to go up, serve the city's say cell phone networks, then go down when a full charged replacement drone come up and take over the soon-to-be-recharged satellite. The transition is seamless, with the satellite A, not accepting any more requests, while satellite B already handles all the new requests for data. For long requests, such as a user down on earth downloading a movie, the communication can be switched to the new satellite, with a transparent all background change for the user experience, same as when driving a long range while giving a phone call, you don't really notice when you change cell tower.
