Opposition continues to increase regarding satellites and similar vehicles being launched for providing internet coverage from way up high (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13). Other vehicles include Loons which have been approved in more than 50 countries – never mind that their parent company refused to allow a public inspection of their experimental license. Regardless, Kenya is now being Loon-ed too.
From Business Insider:
Google’s parent company is flying balloons with ‘floating cell phone towers’ across the ocean to bring internet to Kenya’s Rift Valley
Loon just launched balloon-powered internet in Kenya, in partnership with Telkom Kenya.
Loon is part of Alphabet, Google’s parent company.
The high-altitude balloons act as “floating cell phone towers.”
Project Loon started as one of Alphabet’s moonshot projects, and now its providing internet service in Kenya.
The company makes solar powered balloons that fly high up in the stratosphere and send internet access down to earth.
“Floating cell towers” don’t sound safe for a variety of reasons like collisions, crashes, and of course, radiation emissions. Hopefully Loons have been insured for all of that since they are Looning over so many of us.
