The network enables world wide web access to people stranded in remote places where in global network is unreachable.
An official of Google Inc India has disclosed that India is among the cluster of other nations who has shown interest in the balloon project. "A number of countries, including India, have expressed interest in implementing the project," as told by Todd Rowe, managing director of global channel sales at Google.
