Google said Wednesday that it intends to deploy hundreds of "Project Loon" balloons in an effort to make fast internet more accessible to the citizens of Indonesia.
Google is working with three Indonesian Internet service providers - Telkomsel, Axiata and Inmost - to bring the service to 100 million Indonesians. Currently only about 29 percent of them have Internet access.
"Many hundreds of" helium balloons will be used for the project. Each one will appoximately float 12 miles above the ground and provide Internet service up to 24 miles from its position.
