We’ve just had a big tech season.

Project Loon & Titan? Countdown to Liftoff

When we checked in with Project Loon last, a deal had been signed between Sri Lanka’s government and Google “for local telecommunication companies to enable a connection to the balloon network.  [Google’s plan was to use] their solar panel-powered balloons to float in the stratosphere and send down internet connectivity.  Although this is a country of over 22 million –only about 1 in five people have access to the internet.”  Now, nearing two months later, liftoff is in sight for Project Loon.

Google's Project Loon Set to Take Over the Sky with Big Updates

Google’s Project Loon is an effort to bring internet connectivity to areas all around the world that don’t currently have access to it.  They aim to accomplish this task with a fleet of balloons that are launched into the stratosphere and give LTE connectivity to a perimeter of ground area.  Project Loon has been a big focus this last week as we’ve received news from Google I/O, the company's developer conference held in San Francisco, that Google has two major updates regarding its Project Loon program.  We may be keeping an eye to the sky as it seems that there will most likely be a lot more Google balloons flying about before we know it.
