Wireless internet networks across Africa, Asia…says Google

 As the use of smartphones and computers continues to increase, Google is looking to build wireless networks across Asia and Africa using high-altitude balloons and blimps, according to the report from Wired.

The aim is to help connect one billion people to the internet by financing, building and helping to operate networks from sub-Saharan Africa to Southeast Asia. 

In view of this development, Google has been developing an ecosystem to low-cost, Android smartphones with low-power microprocessors, which would be carrying the signal on high-altitude platforms. With the new development, Google will be able to cover areas of hundreds of square kilometers.


  1. That will be great, especially Africa...

  2. Can't just wait for this innovation, it will send most of this high charging telecommunication giants packing..
