Abstract

Google is a company which certainly attracts criticism, but you cannot argue with the creativity which is nurtured. The company has a knack of taking an idea which no-one has much commercial faith in and running with it. Project loon. Loon LLC is an Alphabet Inc. subsidiary working on providing Internet access to rural and remote areas. The company uses high-altitude balloons in the stratosphere at an altitude of 18 km (11 mi) to 25 km (16 mi) to create an aerial wireless network with up to 4G-LTE speeds. A reference to the balloons used, Project Loon began as a research and development project by X (formerly Google X), but later spun out into a separate company in July 2018.

Keywords: Google, Project Loon, Research and Development
