National Aeronautics and Space Administration have got this confirmation because their Optical Communications and Sensor Demonstration (OCSD) CubeSat spacecraft are right in orbit and they are also operational.
Why National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has chose CubeSat?
It has been seen that CubeSat might not be the very first one and intital one broadband satellite communications system that has been tested by NASA. But on other hand, it is also viewed that CubeSat has this potential and ability of giving super of its kind of faster data transfer that has the speed of 200Mbps.

Facebook and Google will too be providing internet by Drones and Balloons
We have these technology giants like that of the Facebook and Google, it is heard that they have also been working on some suitable projects so that provision of internet can be given to the people by the use of Drones and Balloons. This internet will be able to stay just within the atmosphere of earth.
This subjected initiative that has been taken by NASA and the reason they have chose CubeSats is because of that they are very and much accurate and they are also small in size. They can be measured quite nearly 10cm (about 4 inches) square and they can also be made to work in space.
