LOON balloons have been used elsewhere and can open up the Internet so Cubans — who desire freedom from Communist brutality –Â can communicate freely withÂ each other.
The tennis court-sized balloons float 20 km above sea level, twice the altitude of commercial aircraft. On board solar panels power the balloons, which will provide 4G coverage to regionsÂ such as Kenya.Â And,hopefully,Â possibly Cuba if Biden can muster the political will.
The most likely to do something fast ?Â Let’s hope thatÂ the Gov. of Florida will step up to the plate and provide Internet access.Â He says he wants to.
