Facebook is working on something not too much different from Nokia saving lives project read here. Facebook is working on a helicopter or you can call it a drone that can deliver network service in disaster disturbed areas. it is the Tether-tenna. This was made known at the F8 show.
Currently it’s downside is the large  size it bears, almost the size of car.

Speaking at the F8 conference in San Jose today, the company said that the helicopter, dubbed “Tether-tenna,” would provide “instant infrastructure” during times of crisis. “When completed, this technology will be able to be deployed immediately and operate for months at a time to bring back connectivity in case of an emergency,” said Yael Maguire,

But in contrast to Nokia saving life, Tether-tenna could only be deployed in cases when cellular infrastructure was damaged but fiber lines in the area still work, Maguire said. In those instances, the helicopter will tether to a fiber line and electricity, and then rise hundreds of feet in the air to broadcast a signal.
According to a blog post by Maguire“This is still in the early stages of development and lots of work is needed to ensure that it will be able operate autonomously for months at a time, but we’re excited about the progress so far”.
