LOG IN TO THE FLYING INTERNET
Major corporations want to blanket the Earth with free Internet. By laser drone, by balloon and by microsat, total coverage is coming.
Some of the tech industry’s most innovative companies are developing different solutions which are designed to ensure Internet connections for all people in the world.
Google's Project Loon is balloons flying at an altitude of 20 km and equipped like mobile phone masts. They navigate by ascending/descending to the right air flows. In 2017, it brought Internet access to 100,000 Puerto Ricans following a hurricane.
From 2019, SpaceX will begin launching 4,000+ satellites in a formation, which will cover all of Earth at any time. It will also improve the Internet connections of spacecraft.
In late 2017, OneWeb was allowed to launch 720 satellittes, which are to bring Internet connections with speeds of up to 200 megabits/second to one billion people.
