Hope the FAA talks to the FCC about the many areas in the US without Internet access before moving forward with this.

??? Aircraft transponders don't use the internet.
The FAA proposal is for the drones to connect to the internet to report instead of using the existing air traffic control radar/transponder setup. Those drones that can't connect will be limited to 400' from launch point.
