Google X project ‘Internet balloons’ is ready for use




Project Loon, a project of Google’s experimental laboratory X is much faster to use than expected. That’s because the creators of the balloons that provide Internet can send good enough to provide areas of Internet access.

The idea was originally to provide worldwide coverage by Internet balloons, but now the balloons to control well enough to cover precisely areas where there is no Internet connection available, says parent company Alphabet according to tech site Recode. As a result, are much less balloons needed to start with the project.

Pay with Google will try to bring the internet to remote areas through a 4G signal at high frequency through several balloons to send equipment to the ground. In order to connect to the rest of the Internet, the signal goes through several balloons to a base station with regular Internet on the ground.

The balloons hold their positions because they float on the steady winds at 20 km altitude; if they have to fly somewhere else, they adjust their height to sail up wind from a different direction. Google unveiled its project in 2013. It is still unknown if the balloons are cheaper to provide Internet over the construction of a wired infrastructure or regular phone masts.
