Project Loon: Google’s Balloon-Based Internet Service Seems To Be Stalled In Sri Lanka.

by Anura Guruge

Occurred to me this morning that I really should do an update on how Google’s proposed balloon-based Internet Service, ‘Project Loon‘, was doing in Sri Lanka — given that they were supposed to start testing the service around March of this year.

So I Googled “Project Loon Sri Lanka”. NADA. Nothing since February 2016 — and I did a post on February 24, 2016. V. strange.

Then I Googled “Project Loon” and found these stories. Hhhmmm. Nothing totally disastrous but might explain the delay in Sri Lanka. Also appears that India has yet to give Google permission to try out their Helium balloons over that huge country.
