Bell Labs said astronauts will use its wireless network for data transmission, controlling of lunar rovers, real-time navigation over lunar geography, and streaming of high-definition video. The 4G network on Earth is supported by giant cell towers with enormous power generators and radios

The 4G-LTE network will eventually transition to 5G. It will be “the first LTE/4G communications system in space,” according to NASA’s announcement.
