Det har redan talats en del om Googles projekt för att tillhandahålla internetuppkoppling via ballonger. Här två Ars Technica-artiklar:

Report: Google considering Internet balloons to connect sub-Saharan Africa (2013-05-26)

Google’s balloon-based wireless networks may not be a crazy idea (2013-06-02)

 

Nu har projektet, som kallas Project Loon, presenterats officiellt: Introducing Project Loon: Balloon-powered Internet access

 

I presentationen framställs problemet som ballongerna skall lösa sålunda: “But for 2 out of every 3 people on earth, a fast, affordable Internet connection is still out of reach.”

 

Projektet befinner sig i en mycket tidig fas, och det testas nu i Nya Zeeland.

Many of us think of the Internet as a global community. But two-thirds of the world’s population does not yet have Internet access. Project Loon is a network of balloons traveling on the edge of space, designed to connect people in rural and remote areas, help fill coverage gaps, and bring people back online after disasters.
