Google Turns To Satellites To Bring Internet To Remote World

Google is looking use a fleet of 180 180 small satellites to bring Internet access to remote regions of the world, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The company plans to spend between $1 billion and $3 billion to initially bring high-capacity satellites in orbit at lower altitudes than traditional satellites, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday citing people familiar with the matter.

Google launched its first satellites by O3b Networks in June 2013, in order to offer low-cost and high-speed connectivity to remote parts of the world.

O3b's satellites weigh about 680 kilograms but Google plans to use satellites that weigh about 110 kg, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Tech companies are interested in bringing Internet access to less connected parts of the globe. The two-thirds of the world currently don't have access to the Internet and remain a huge market.

Google is already working to deliver Internet access with Project Loon, a fleet of balloons floating in the stratosphere.

Facebook in August launched a quest together with six other tech companies to bridge the digital divide. And in March, Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company planned to use drones, satellites and even data-carrying laser beams fired across space.
