How Balloon Powered Internet will work?
Project Loon is the network of balloons which will travel at the edge of the space.
The normal satellite can cover up-to a particular range to provide internet connectivity. But balloons can serve a huge range of areas.
These balloons can provide connection speeds of up to 10 Mbps, directly to your LTE phones.
Recently one of the balloons survives for 190 days aloft in the stratosphere.
