Will balloons bring the internet to every square inch of the world’s second most populous country?


Gurgaon, Haryana, India., December 4, 2017 - (PressReleasePoint) -
 

Can a network of floating balloons offer internet services? It seems to be a scene right from a science-fiction movie.

Tech giant Google has launched a network of balloons that travel 20 km above ground level to deliver signals using LTE technology making the internet available at 4G speeds even in rural areas.

First launched in New Zealand in 2015, the balloons later made their way to Brazil, Australia and recently Sri Lanka and Indonesia.

The Indian government is still apprehensive about this technology, in the face of claims that it could lead to technical glitches due to interference with cellular transmission.

Nonetheless, the government is yet to come back with a conclusive response.
