This project that aims to bring internet access to everyone by creating an internet network of balloons through the stratosph ere and providing internet service access for an area about 1250 sq kms. This project uses high altitude balloons which is made up of Polyethylene plastic and placed in stratosphere at an altitude of 32 kilometer to create an aerial wireless network with the speed of 3G network. A small box weighing 10 kg containing each balloon's electronic equipment hangs underneath the inflated env elope. This box contains circuit boards, radio antennae, GPS system, transponder, a Ubiquiti Networks Rocket (UNR) M2, batteries and ante nnae to connect to the internet via ground station on the earth, they can then transmit the internet via their antennae within a 40 kilometer diameter and to receive data from the user side it uses a special antenna for the users which will connect to the internet of any balloon flying overhead. If successful the technology might allow countries to leapfrog the expense of laying fibre cable, which is to be installed underground to allow the users to connect internet and dramatically increasing Internet usage in various countries.
