These large balloons will fly 20 kilometres above the Earth’s surface. The balloon will transmit internet signals. Trials of this technology have been successful in the mountainous regions of Brazil, California and New Zealand. The official from Department of Technology and Communication told reporters that the Google asked for Indian government’s permission to implement drone-based internet services and the Loon project.

The area of 40km diameter can be covered under LTE or 4G coverage through each balloon, according to information published by the Google. The people would be able to access LTE or other internet service through their phones as the Project Loon will collaborate with telecom operators and share their spectrum.
