On May 13th, 2020, Matt Fanelli, Director of Strategy and Operations, Skyward, A Verizon Company, took part in a panel of industry leaders for the webinar, “Is the World Ready for Drone Delivery?”. During the webinar, Fanelli discussed a variety of topics concerning what a complete picture of all the aircraft in the national airspace would mean for the future of drone delivery and how networked connectivity can address risks involved with advanced operations. What was brought up during that discussion ended up raising several additional questions about drone delivery and the role telecoms has to play in the drone ecosystem.

Commercial UAV News was able to reconnect with Fanelli during an exclusive video interview to dive deeper into the role of telecoms, the future of 5G for drone delivery, and more.
