Google has launched a small network of ballons over the Southern Hemisphere (New Zealand’s South Island), which uses solar-powered, high altitude ballons (twice as high as airplanes above ground) as anexperimentto provide Internet access to the remote regions.

These ballons moves with the wind and the ballons makes a network of airborne hot spots that willdeliverInternet access over a wide area at a speed of 3G networks. The internet can be accessed via a smallantennawhich is attached to building below.

The officialannouncementhas been made on google’s official blogand the website google loon.

The project is in experimental phase where 30 ballons will be deployed this month which will shape the next working phase of the Project Loon. There is nodisclosureabout the money spent on the experiment and how much a global network of ballons might cost.

We can say now that Clouds have really made us a computing world. With these ballons every possible country, small cities can have internet access and the reality of global computing is then possible for sure.

There are many question which has to beanswered, like what will be the connectivity like, constant or temporary, what if the ballon goes away due to excess wind.
