After many bureaucratic run-ins over its ambitious plan to provide internet connectivity using high-altitude balloons, Google may be close to conducting a pilot of Project Loon in India. The communications and IT ministry is in discussions with the internet giant to test its technology through a pilot, but only for four days. The location of the pilot is expected to be in Andhra Pradesh or Maharashtra.

According to a top government official, the idea is to test as many alternative models of providing internet connectivity in India as possible. "We are trying to test the effectiveness of Loon in the interiors of the country, since there is already ample connectivity in urban areas," said the official, who did not want to be identified.

Mmm, to provide internet connectivity though high-altitude balloons, sounds interesting this project. And the pilot is gonna be tested in Andhra Pradesh or Maharashtra, and only for four days. Looks like a great solution to provide quality internet across the countryside.
