PTScientists will launch a lunar rover in 2019 to study the Apollo 17 rover.

Link 1
The Mission to the Moon by PTScientists is set to launch next year and it will be the first privately-funded Moon landing. Vodafone is planning to create the first 4G network on the Moon and now they have chosen Nokia to be their technology partner in this very special mission. They are aiming to create the lightest space-grade Ultra Compact Network for this project.
They will be connecting two Audi lunar quattro rovers to the base station in the Autonomous Landing and Navigation Module (ALINA). They should be able to not just communicate but also transfer scientific data and even HD video. They will be approaching and studying the Apollo 17 lunar roving vehicle which were used by the last astronauts who were able to walk on the Moon back in 1972

This should start some fireworks across the planet. Interesting to see what happens as a result.
