"Loon for all.

Google Inc has piloted a program, named Project Loon, which is aimed at bringing a reliable internet connection to the most remote regions on earth. The company has launched a small network of balloons over the Southern Hemisphere to start the testing.

The program started this month; the location being the Canterbury area of New Zealand’s South Island. The company are using high-altitude solar-powered balloons that ride the wind about 20 kilometres (12.5 miles) above the ground; that’s twice the height a commercial airline flies."
