How to connect billions of new Internet users?

There are currently about 2.4 billion internet users. That means 4.6 billion are not yet connected. Google Loon is a Google initiative to try and get more people connected…billions more people! If Google is successful, it will allow billions of new Internet connections to take place in developing countries and rural areas where internet is not yet available. It could revolutionize emerging economies, their healthcare, education, and work…

A ring of balloons will sail in the stratosphere like low level satellites, bringing broadband to remote areas.

Now think about the information Google could collect from these billions of connections. And think about the potential to hand out low cost Android devices equipped with Google powered products. If this project is to come to reality, it could be a big deal for Google.
