Google is providing Internet access in Puerto Rico through project Loon

Alphabet, Google’s parent company, is providing Internet access to Puerto Rico, a month after Hurricane Maria passed, using the high-flying internet balloons. The company announced that some balloons from its Project Loon program had been deployed over Puerto Rico, in an effort to provide people with limited internet access, sufficient allow for basic activities like sending texts or accessing information online. To deploy the balloons, Alphabet partnered with AT&T, the government of Puerto Rico, and the United States government’s Federal Communications Commission, Federal Aviation Administration and Federal Emergency Management Agency.
