A pie from the sky: The future of drone deliveries is suburban - The Next Web

Quick Summary:

And it’s being led by retail behemoths Amazon, Walmart, and a slew of food delivery companies.

Earlier this month, the company received Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) approval to fly up to 3.2 nautical km ( two miles), expanding its potential delivery radius to reach 100,000 eligible customers across all operating stations.

In May, Walmart announced an expansion of its DroneUp delivery network to 34 sites by the end of the year, providing the potential to reach 4 million US households across Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Texas, Utah, and Virginia.
